Terra future 2010

Free seminar at Ordnance Survey, Wednesday 10 March 2010

Many thanks to our speakers who gave fantastic presentations that enabled each community to gain a greater understanding of linked data and Geographical information. The presentations enabled the delegates to participate in lively round table discussions at the end of the day.

These discussions enabled everyone to start thinking about linked data and take away ideas from the event and begin to understand linked data in order to build and develop more linked data applications.

The day has opened an opportunity to draw together two communities in order to utilise linked data and Geographical Information.

Wed 10 Mar 2010 10:49:02 +0000

Geography has Topographical IDs (TOIDs) that can be used to connect info. Can hang your own info on them #terrafuture

Does anyone know to what scale TOIDs go? Neighborhood? Suburbs? Parish etc? #terrafuture

Wed 10 Mar 2010 10:52:07 +0000

Hopefully #terrafuture will help port more web and linked data philosophy and practice back to the GIS domain.
