Linked Data: A Geographic Perspective - Free eBook

Linked Data: A Geographic Perspective - Free eBook | TIG | Scoop.it
eBook Free Download: Linked Data: A Geographic Perspective | PDF, EPUB | ISBN: 1439869952 | 2013-01-28 | English | PutLocker

 

Geographic Information has an important role to play in linking and combining datasets through shared location, but the potential is still far from fully realized because the data is not well organized and the technology to aid this process has not been available. Developments in the Semantic Web and Linked Data, however, are making it possible to integrate data based on GeographicInformation in a way that is more accessible to users. Drawing on the industry experience of a geographer and a computer scientist, Linked Data: A Geographic Perspective is a practical guide to implementing Geographic Information as Linked Data.

6 Personality Types That Sabotage Brainstorming Efforts

1. Attention Vampires – They always want to stand out, be in the spotlight, and be the center of attention. It’s always about them.

2. Wet Blankets – These are the pessimists who see the flaws in everyone else’s ideas. Nothing goes unscathed.

3. Idea Assassins – These seasoned killers love to shoot down ideas – anyone’s and everyone’s.

4. Dictators – They love every idea – as long as it’s theirs.

5. Obstructionists – To them, nothing is simple or easy.

6. Social Loafers – These are the people who show up for a brainstorm session, but rarely participate.

Miguel Ángel Vargas's insight:

Tot projecte requereix d'una fase de planejament i definició on s'han de compartir idees de manera constructiva. Atenció a aquests personatges!

GeoSocial Web Service Identifies and Maps Your Geolocated Tweets

GeoSocial Web Service Identifies and Maps Your Geolocated Tweets | TIG | Scoop.it

Have you ever wondered just how many of your tweets have been geolocated, either on purpose or by accident? An interesting effort indeed as I’m sure this is a much larger issue than what you may have first thought. There’s no doubt that many people are accidentally providing geopositioning in their tweets and may not even be aware that they have enabled GPS tags to be stored with their tweet.

Miguel Ángel Vargas's insight:
