Serving Ireland's Authoritative Geospatial Data as Linked Data
Feedback form is now closed.
Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) is Ireland's national mapping agency and is charged with managing authoritative geospatial information for the country. OSi has developed a complex relation database model to store this information called Prime2, using the Oracle 12c suite. To make some of this data more readily accessible to third parties, OSi has adopted Linked Data practices to do so. Through work between OSi and the ADAPT Centre in Trinity College Dublin, a Linked Data platform (data.geohive.ie) has been developed to publish this data. The platform currently relies on multiple tools for transforming relational data to RDF, storage, querying (GeoSPARQL over geospatial information), a Linked Data front-end and a back-end tool to reduce server load. The next design of the platform will utilise more functionality of the Oracle 12c suite to make access more efficient. This presentation will discuss how we worked with OSi to make available their Oracle based geospatial data as Linked Data.
