TEAM LEADER: Wolfgang Ksoll (Viderum/NextGEOSS data hub/Berlin)
TEAM MEMBERS: Marek Splichal, Stepan Kafka, Tomas Reznik
PROJECT IDEA: Today the data hub of NextGEOSS harvests metadata from sources on a proprietary basis where connectors are programmed to harvest e.g. from different sources of the Copernicus Sentinel missions as they are provided and can be searched in the data hub with a web interface or with programmatic interface like some NextGEOSS pilot projects do.
The task of the project is to apply the GeoDCAT-CKAN-extension to a test version of the NextGEOSS data hub und to study the consequences:
- harvesting GeoDCAT metadata
- searching in the hub webbased
- searching with OpenSearch interface
- new possibilities and access points with RDF and step in the door of the semantic web world
