Last week, on November 1 I was honored to be a panelist at Panel session no.4 in the Mini-series on "Ontology and Semantic Technology for the Earth Science Community". This panel was organized by ONTOLOG, one of the most well-known international ontology forums. There were about 45 virtual participants.
Linked Data is about enabling computers to search structured information about “things” over the web. The linking methodology is based on the following Semantic Web principles:
1) Things are uniquely identified using Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs).
2) Use HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) URIs, to make those things accessible by computer programs.
3) The knowledge of things is expressed using the W3C Resource Description Framework (RDF) and queried via SPARQL.
