Spatial.LinkedScience.org opened!

During the last few days and weeks we (Krzysztof Janowicz, Carsten Keßler, Alexander Savelyev and Tomi Kauppinen) created a Linked Data set about the people, papers and proceedings  of the COSIT (Conference on Spatial Information Theory) series.

The result is now opened and can be interacted with at Spatial.LinkedScience.org! We look forward to maintain the portal as a community effort in order to serve back the community, i.e. the researchers of the Spatial Information and Geographic Information Science. 

Would other communities be interested in joining LinkedScience.org? Just contact us, and let us plan it.

How should a science schema look like?

Tomi Kauppinen and Alkyoni Baglatzi ran a breakout session at Science Online London 2011 with the question “Can we develop something like schema.org to encourage data sharing and reuse?”. This story combines the preparation of the session, presentation given at the session and results. Follow @LinkedScience to hear how the results gets implemented and published as a science schema. Presentation and results of this science schema breakout session now available at:
