DCMI Webinar: 'Implementing Linked Data in Low-Resource Conditions'

Monday, June 01, 2015

Typical small and medium-size institutions have to deal with constrained resources, which often hamper the possibilities of making their data publicly available. Johannes Keizer and Caterina Caracciolo of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization will provide an overview of bottlenecks that institutions typically face when entering the world of open and linked data, and will provide recommendations on how to proceed. They will discuss the use of standard and linked vocabularies to produce linked data, especially in the area of agriculture. They will describe AGRISAs, a web-based resource linking agricultural datasets as an example of linked data application resulting from the collaboration of small institutions. They will also mention AgriDrupal, a Drupal distribution that supports the production and consumption of linked datasets.
