Transcript of "Enriching the German National Library's LinkedData Service with Geographic Coordinates"

  1. 1. Lars G. Svensson Enriching the German National Library’s Linked Data Service with Geographic Coordinates : Approach and Lessons Learned (so far) 1 |6 | Geographic Coordinates in DNB Data : Linking Geospatial Data | March 5, 2014
  2. 2. The DNB has started to publish geospatial data Point coordinates and bounding boxes Titles (27 mill.) Maps & Charts (20,000) 2 |6 Authorities (10 mill.) Geographic entities (40,000 with coordinates) Currently only Point coordinates | Geographic Coordinates in DNB Data : Linking Geospatial Data | March 5, 2014
  3. 3. The links between titles and places allows you to find publications dealing with a specific location 3
  4. 4. – We wanted to use the same vocabulary for all entity types (maps and places) and for all coordinate types (points and polygons) – The vocabulary should be widely deployed and allow the customers to do interesting stuff with the data 4 |6 | Geographic Coordinates in DNB Data : Linking Geospatial Data | March 5, 2014 Map by OpenStreetMap (CC BY-SA) For the RDF representation we had two major requirements

We decided to use geosparql with simple features, but they are not easy for laymen to use correctly… 5 <http://d-nb.info/1037321472> a bibo:Map , bibo:Document ; bibo:isbn13 "9783869874982" ; dcterms:isPartOf <http://d-nb.info/551113464> ; isbd:P1053 "1 Kt." ; dcterms:spatial [ a sf:Polygon ; geo:asWKT "Polygon (( +009.766666 +054.866666, +009.766666 +054.183333, +011.433333 +054.183333, +011.433333 +054.866666, +009.766666 +054.866666 ))"^^geo:wktLiteral . ]; dcterms:subject <http://d-nb.info/gnd/4030486-3> , <http://d-nb.info/gnd/4179589-1> ; dcterms:issued "2013" ; dc:title "[Deutsche Seekarte]" ; rda:otherTitleInformation "30.
