Title: Free Your Metadata
Team: Free Your Metadata
The Free Your Metadata project wants to leverage existing tools to generate more adoption of Linked Data principles amongst librarians, archivists and museum professionals. Academia and companies have generated tremendous progress the last ten years regarding standards and technologies. We want to focus on large-scale adoption of these standards and technologies by making them available for a non-technical audience.

Title: Maphub – old maps in globally connected data networks
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: Canvas – Spatial Interaction of our Collections with Linked Open Data
Using the spatial concepts of landscapes and pathways, I’m experimenting with new ways of visualizing museum collections that entice the curious explorer. My work identifies themes and narratives within collections and showcases the connections that objects have with one another. I’m planning on using Linked Open Data to enrich the collection data-sets : giving greater context to the objects and enriching the connections between them.
