W3C Annotations applied to Inspire data : standards and prototype

Philippe Duchesne

(Submission #317)


This talk is based on the results of the Mosaics project, which explores the application of annotations standards - and more specifically the emerging W3C Web Annotation Model - to hypermedia resources, aiming at creating graphs of annotated linked data fragments. In particular, special attention has been given to geospatial standards, as these consitute a large part of online geodata subject to annotations. As the project focuses on the use of URI fragments and the extension of the Web Annotation Model to represent annotations graphs, it highlights how existing geospatial standards and practices fit within this linked data approach. This experimentation resulted in both a tentative standardization effort that conflates the W3C annotation standard and the geospatial standards (in particular OGC standards), and a prototype annotation platform that showcases the benefits of such annotations applied to geospatial data, through a set of relevant usecases. The current version of this annotation platform has been integrated in governmental open data platforms, and also used in a JRC project to annotate Inspire documentation and reports.
