Spatial Discovery of Linked Research Datasets and Documents at a Spatially Enabled Research Library

Sara Lafia, Werner Kuhn
2018 Journal of Map & Geography Libraries  
The system described in this work has been deployed, resulting in an experimental open data site for the UCSB campus.  ...  This is because datasets are not well-integrated across academic domains and they are often not linked to the documents that reference them.  ...  GeoLink also provides a scientific knowledge base for describing research data, which was absent in the previous data model.  ...

Geospatial Semantics [chapter]

Yingjie Hu
2018 Comprehensive Geographic Information Systems  
Meanwhile, the arrival of big geo data, especially the large amount of unstructured text data on the Web, and the fast development of natural language processing methods enable new research directions  ...  Geospatial semantics can also facilitate the design of geographic information systems (GIS) by enhancing the interoperability of distributed systems and developing more intelligent interfaces for user  ...  Since the data to be published can come from a variety of domains with diverse attributes, Resource Description Framework (RDF) has been employed for organizing and publishing Linked Data.  ...
