lecture: A RESTful API for linking geodata
Publishing open data is a trend movement but still nowadays geographical information are often released as shapefiles despite this common format isn't recommended for such scope. We have used GeoNode, a spatial data infrastructure for publishing open geodata through standard OGC Web Services, with a RESTful API to model such resources to the semantic interoperability. GeoLinkeData is a django application based on a GeoNode template that allows to publish interlinked shapefiles as triple stores and search them with GeoSPARQL queries from a Virtuoso backend.
