Local Data as Linked Data

Vortrag zum Statusmeeting vom 7. Oktober 2014

Binarypark allows small enterprises to run online and mobile business at a discount price. We release Linked Data for the purpose of market research allowing intelligent applications to enhance local business sales and make new business insights possible. Particularly, the use of intelligent mashups, i.e., digital works in which data from one or more sources is combined and presented in innovative ways, is a great way to expose this value. Although there are many approaches to publishing and using consumer data, we believe Linked Data is a key solution of many of the challenges and can lower the cost and complexity of developing these applications. We present an ontology of local consumer and argue why Linked Data is a better model and how it can be used to improve local and regional business.
