What’s in Data.gov?

A recent article by Tim Berners-Lee, “Putting Government Data online“, has attracted significant interest to the datasets published at the US data.gov website. As Berners-Lee discusses the Semantic Web techniques that can be used to get those data into RDF space (something we are now working on), we would like to share our initial investigation of the contents of these government datasets.

Editor’s note: This guest post comes from Jim Hendler, a professor, web researcher, and Semantic Web evangelist working at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. You can see more of his teams’ ongoing research at Tetherless World.

The Smarter Planet tumblelog is an outgrowth of IBM’s strategic initiative to help a world of smart systems emerge.
