Publication of Statistical Linked Open Data in Japan with Oracle RDF graph
Feedback form is now closed.
The National Statistics Center of Japan is responsible for managing and publishing a wide variety of national statistical data on its e-Stat portal site. The Center works with national and local agencies to make statistics widely accessible to government and the public. Inconsistent metadata definitions from the myriad of data sources made it difficult to align data semantics to support effective search and discovery.
To break through this problem, the Center developed a Linked Open Data
(LOD) platform in 2016, which publishes Japan statistics such as the population census and consumer price index.
This platform was built using the RDF graph capability in Oracle Database Spatial and Graph, and configured on Exadata and Oracle's SPARQL endpoint service.
To improve provisioning and manageability, the platform was migrated to the Oracle Public Cloud.
This move freed up limited resources to focus on developing new services, such as spatial search on sub-regional geometries using GeoSPARQL.
