SDI 4 Apps - Uptake of open geographic information through innovative services based on linked data

As part of the ISAF Hackathon in Jelgava, an experiment with accessing and visualisation of Eurostat RDF data in HSlayers NG was prepared. It is the belief that this will enable more experiments and also extended the concept to other data.


Online map viewer which can be used to visualize Eurostat data about different statistics for NUTS regions, using choropleth maps and custom WMS services. Eurostat-provided RDF datasets and dictionaries (classifications) have to be imported in Virtuoso triple store, which also provides SPARQL endpoint functionality, for making more complicated custom queries. Some datasets already have been uploaded for demonstration purposes.

HS Layers is currently under development.
