About this Meetup:

Geodata services have become a vital part of our daily mobile lives/life. Looking up places and routes, time-tables for public transport, hiking trails, ski slopes, and all kinds of points-of-interest has become self-evident for internet and smart-phone users. Because there is a myriad of possibilities and use-cases where geodata supports people in their daily tasks, the importance of free and open geodata is not to be underestimated.

In this meetup - which is again taking place in Graz, on the eve of the I-Semantics and I-Know conferences - we will hear highly interesting talks about open geodata projects and how semantic technology and the Linked Open Data principle can be used to enhance geodata for next-generation services.

Because geo information is also an essential part of Open Government Data (think about government maintained points-of-interest such as stations, public buildings, parks, etc.; nearly all kinds of statistics can be geo-coded), we will also talk about OGD initiatives and how future OGD and GIS infrastructures could be seamlessly integrated by the Linked Open Data principles. We expect to have interesting Lightning Talks too! As this MeetUp is on the eve of i-semantics and i-know - Conference we expect to meet experts and enthusiasts from Austria and abroad.
