A one-stop shop for Open Government Data: publicdata.eu improved with social features and more linked data sets
publicdata.eu aggregates an increasing number of data catalogues from throughout the European Union. As part of the LOD2 project, the Open Knowledge Foundation is working with representatives of local, regional and national open data catalogues to have their datasets represented in this single portal. This presentation will showcase many recent improvements on publicdata.eu, such as personalisation features, allowing you to ‘follow’ particular datasets, groups, and users. The number of linked data sets has also significantly been increased, by adding the ability to convert CSV to RDF datasets and allow users to specify the mappings to the right ontologies.
