GeoKnow: Making the Web an Exploratory for Geospatial Knowledge

GeoKnow addresses a bold challenge in the area of intelligent information management: the exploitation of the Web as a platform for geospatial knowledge integration as well as for exploration of geographic information. 

What

  • Bring geospatial knowledge integration to the Linked Data Web
  • Billion-triple geospatial reasoning and data provenance
  • Qualitative interlinking and fusing of geospatial and semantic information
  • Adaptive geospatial exploration, authoring and curation

Why

  • Unlock isolated islands of geographic information
  • 80% of all data has some spatial dimension, most of it is not processable today
  • Geographic data authoring with millions of users requires powerful tools

For whom

  • Added value for the companies and the Linked Data Web community
  • Cost-effective data integration for SMEs
  • Enterprises can add value to their data with volunteered geographic information
  • Users from travel industry will benefit from more background information
