Promoting the theory and practice of organizing knowledge and information

Linking geographic data for research

The EDINA National Datacentre in Edinburgh serves to “seeks to enhance the productivity, quality and cost-effectiveness of research and education in the UK and beyond”. Its flagship service for research and learning is Digimap, which provides access to Ordnance Survey data for universities, colleges, and last year adding services for schools. More interesting, perhaps, is the bubble of smaller services and projects in the geographic information space. Recently JISC, “the UK’s expert on information and digital technologies for education and research”, has been supporting many of its services and projects to extend with Linked Data. This talk covered some of the results and implications for spatial scholarship.
