Original Announcement

In the last two decades, location data has undergone many evolutions, due among other reasons to the development of the web. Many initiatives, related to the theme of Geodata on the Web, are currently on the go. This event will discuss the latest state of the art, both from the GISGeografisch informatiesysteem (GIS). perspective as well as the Web world. We bring together the Linked Data and GISGeografisch informatiesysteem (GIS). communities for a fruitful discussion of current and future steps to be taken.

The event is co-organized by EuroSDR, Platform Linked Data The Netherlands (PLDNPlatform Linked Data Nederland (PLDN)), OGC/W3C Spatial Data on The Web Workgroup and the European Projects: ELF, proDataMarket, Melodies, GEISER and IQMulus.
