We were working in the last weeks on bringing geo data derived from the marvelous OpenStreetMap project to the data web. This work in progress is still far from being finished, however, we would like to share some first preliminary results:
- A vast amount of point-of-interest descriptions was extracted from OSM and published as Linked Data at http://linkedgeodata.org
- The Linked Geo Data browser and editor (available at http://linkedgeodata.org/browser) is a facet-based browser for geo content, which uses an OLAP inspired hypercube for quickly retrieving aggregated information about any user selected area on earth.
Further information can be also found in our AKSW project description.
