How to create innovative applications with Linked Data and Location Intelligence? Our three experts on Linked Data & Geo will illustrate their visions and experience.
Erwin Folmer kicks of this webinar with an overview of the concept of Linked Data and the opportunities it creates for private and public organizations. Erwin Folmer leads the Platform Linked Data on behalf of Geonovum. Geonovum supports the Dutch government in making geospatial data more accessible. Platform Linked Data NL is a meeting place for professionals dealing with open data.
The main areas of expertise of Frans Knibbe, researcher at Geodan, are databases, standards, information modelling and Linked Data. Frans has participated in multiple projects in which achieving international interoperability of data was a key mission (EuroGeoNames, ESDIN, EuroGeoSource). In recent years, Frans has focused on using Linked Data principles in the provisioning of geographical data. Frans has been active in many communities that are concerned with Linked Data and geoinformatics (OGC, W3C, JRC, Geonovum, Dutch Pilot Linked Open Data). He is co-chair of the W3C community group on locations and addresses.
The third speaker at this webinar is Xander Wilcke, researcher at the VU University Amsterdam. There, he forms a bridge between the Network Institute (Computer Science), and the Spatial Information laboratory. His research focusses on how Machine Learning can be used to learn new and exciting knowledge from Linked Geospatial Data; an innovative method to store, publish, and share geospatial data. In his daily work, Xander experiences how Linked Data generates added value for both fellow researchers and students, and he will illustrate this with examples from the Digital Humanities.
This webinar is moderated by Dr. Niels van Manen, Coordinator UNIGIS Amsterdam. Although there is a geo-ict focus in every webinar topic, you don’t necessarily have to be familiar with geo-ict. These webinars target a broad audience. The webinars are free to attend.
