    Title: Maphub – old maps in globally connected data networks

    Team: Maphub

    Short Description

    Old maps are a record of the past, exposing features people might want to tell stories about. We built Maphub, which is a prototype Web application that enables them to do so by creating annotations on digitized high-resolution historical maps. By semantically tagging regions on the map, users create associations between their annotations and resources in open Web-based data networks. These associations are leveraged to enable multilingual search and to generate overlays of historical maps on modern mapping applications. Contributed annotations are shared on the Web following the W3C Open Annotation specification. Maphub is built on the Linked Data technology stack and a first demo has been setup with the Library of Congress’ historical map collection. The high-level goal of this project is (i) to showcase how existing Linked data can be used and integrated into existing scholarly processes, such as annotations, and (ii) vice-versa, how applications could support users in contributing data and knowledge to broader, open data and knowledge networks.

    Title: NTNU University Library — linked data 2013

    Team: NTNU University Library

    Short description: We have moved a little way beyond data conversion since starting with linked data in 2009 and are moving on with our fully fledged metadata-driven workflow for archives, special collections and photography. We’re creating a lightweight Web infrastructure that provides a modular approach to doing what libraries need to do; we bring the simple linked data framework, which makes space for real innovation in the data creation and visualization process. Providing simple industry standard tools that IT admins won’t balk at having to maintain, we believe that this is state-of-the-art technology: simple and functional, yet providing easy access to a real-world linked data toolkit.

    Team: MisMuseos

    Country: Spain

    Team Leader: Ricardo Alonso Maturana

    Team members: María Elena Alvarado, María Ortega, Susana López-Sola, Rubén Vinagre, María José Ibáñez, Lorena Ruiz Elósegui, Javier Altuzarra, Juan Valer, Kamal Majaiti.

    The team brings together expertise in the development of semantic web, data structuring, exploitation of linked data, faceted search engines and algorithms based on semantic technologies.
    The team is formed by people from GNOSS company, a small Spanish company which has developed the first social and semantic platform of linked social networks that runs on semantic standards (Linked Data Web). The platform enables automatic data connection, the development of faceted searches based on reasoning and the generation of contexts and advanced recommendation systems (http://www.gnoss.com). GNOSS is the first Spanish company that published its datasets in the Linked Open Data Cloud and CKAN and appears in the LOD cloud since September 2011. GNOSS provides vertical solutions in Culture and Education through cultural and educational graphs of linked communities for connecting content as well as interests.

    MAIN GOAL AND DATASETS OF MISMUSEOS.NET
    The main goal of Mismuseos.net is to present a case of exploitation of Linked Data for the G.L.A.M. community through innovative end-user applications built on GNOSS. Mismuseos.net is a free access semantic online solution for end-users that allows them to find and discover museums-related content, and also reach some related external information thanks to the correlation with other datasets.
    Mismuseos.net uses several datasets: Europeana, Dbpedia, Geonames and Didactalia
