News from the LODUM headquarters and all things Linked Open Data.

A linked data based web application will be presented as a student contribution by Friedrich Müller at the FOSSGIS Conference (11-13 March 2015) in Münster (  read the abstract ). The application shows dynamic geovisualizations of the exploration of cause-effect relationships between cancer types and environmental substances.

More information you can find here: “Linked Data basierter Explorer für krebsrelevante Ursache-Wirkungs-Beziehungen im raum-zeitlichen Kontext” (german version) and on Github (https://github.com/lodum/CancerExplorer).

Our former LODUM team member Tomi Kauppinen and his team at Aalto University have developed a nice vocabulary visualizer. It allows you to compare the use of vocabularies on any given number of SPARQL endpoints, showing both the overlap and the number of instances of the different classes used.
