government linked data

John Sheridan

Head of e-Services and Strategy

25 September 2009


Some key extracts l.jpg

Some key extracts…

  • “Mr Berners-Lee and Prof Shadbolt presented an update to Cabinet on their work advising the Government on how to make data more accessible to the public”

  • “Sir Tim Berners-Lee told Cabinet about the goal of delivering a single online access point to Government information, similar to the one introduced by the Obama administration in the US.”


We can do more with the web than just deliver documents to people l.jpg

We can do more with the web than just deliver documents to people

  • What makes the current (document) Web work?

    • people create different documents

    • they give an address to it (ie, a URI) and make it accessible to others on the Web


In more practical terms l.jpg

In more practical terms…

  • Use URIs to publish data, not only full documents

  • Link the data to other data

  • Classify the data and the links (the “terms”) to convey extra meaning

  • Use standards throughout (RDF, OWL, SKOS, SPARQL)
