Ed Parsons: Making Where Everywhere

Ed Parsons: Making Where Everywhere

This deck supports Ed's talk from http://power-of-data-2017.swirrl.com/ on the role of geography as part of the web. It also refers to the work of OGC and W3C in making unstructured data more structured and making structured data visible.

    the web becomes mainstream

  3. @edparsons Geography

  4. @edparsons "everything is related to everything else, but near things

    are more related than distant things." Waldo R. Tobler, 1970

  12. @edparsons

  13. @edparsons So what's the problem ?

  14. @edparsons • Most web content about places unstructured • Harvesting

    requires sophisticated NLP and inference • Does not scale ! Implicit and unstructured.. <h3>Visiting Address</h3> <p>Netherland Institute for Sound and Vision<br />Media Parkboulevard 1<br />1217 WE Hilversum</p> <p>If your navigation system does not recognize our (new) adress, you can find us on Sumatralaan 45, 1217 GP Hilversum.</p> <h2>Postal Address</h2> <p>Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid Media Park, <br />Postbus 1060<br />1200 BB Hilversum</p> <h2>Opening hours</h2> <ul><li>The experience is open Tuesday - Sunday, 10.00 - 17.30h</li> <li>Closed on monday</li> </ul><h2>Entrance prices</h2> <ul><li>Adults: € 16,00</li> <li>Children between the ages of 4 and 12: € 9,00</li> <li>Children up to age 3: Free</li>
  15. @edparsons Spatial is special !

  16. @edparsons • Geospatial industry has developed it’s own web services

    to publish Location information • Dominated by large Government data publishers and Enterprise customers • “Fit for purpose” for a niche industry ? The SDI problem...

  18. @edparsons mm… better fix it then, but how ?

  19. @edparsons Open Government Zeitgeist

  20. @edparsons Linked Data Geospatial Data ?

  21. @edparsons http://www.w3.org/2015/spatial/wiki/Main_Page

  22. @edparsons 1. to determine how spatial information can best be

    integrated with other data on the Web; 2. to determine how machines and people can discover that different facts in different datasets relate to the same place, especially when 'place' is expressed in different ways and at different levels of granularity; 3. to identify and assess existing methods and tools and then create a set of best practices for their use; 4. to complete the standardization of informal technologies already in widespread use.

    the Web Best Practices 3. Time Ontology in OWL 4. Semantic Sensor Network Vocabulary 5. Coverage in Linked Data 1. Use Cases and Requirements 2. Spatial Data on the Web Best Practices 3. Time Ontology in OWL 4. Semantic Sensor Network Vocabulary 5. Coverage in Linked Data
  24. @edparsons what is best practice ?

  25. @edparsons The Audience...

  26. @edparsons • Best Practice not theory • No re-inventing the

    wheel • Builds on W3C Data on the Web Best Practices • Benefits vs. Effort www.w3.org/TR/sdw-bp/
