Hi Bernadette,

Of course I have to point you to my data set !
http://kasabi.com/dataset/brandweer-amsterdam-amstelland-dispatch-messages
Real-time 4,5 star linked data about incident dispatch messages in 
Amsterdam.

If a firetruck drives out of the station, the incident it's send to is 
already described in Kasabi.
Contains VCard and GEO  from the GLD specs.
It references a Dutch Web Meta Data standard with DCTerms, and 
http://firebrary.resc.info to describe the incident itself

( its mainly in Dutch for now though )

Met Vriendelijke Groet
Bart van Leeuwen

Subject:        Please recommend interesting 4-5 star Linked Data Sets



Hi all,
I'm putting together a talk for the upcoming SemTech conference in San 
Francisco on behalf of the GLD WG and the status of publishing open 
government data sets worldwide.  I hope this is a no brainer. 

Can you please respond with a data set name(s), a 1-2 sentence description 
& ideally a URL of any 4 or 5 star Linked Data sets that you know about, 
can brag about because you're doing it, or think would be of interest to 
others. 

We hope to be announcing the availability of the environmental datasets 
our team worked on during the last 12 mos.  FYI, we're in the security 
planning process with EPA and hope to have some good news to share in the 
coming months. 

Step by step we are all getting there. Hopefully the working group & those 
lurking on this list are demonstrating the value of these data sets within 
verticals & sub-domains with which we work. 

I ask for your assistance with some profile raising so that more managers 
will feel comfortable that there is a thriving ecosystem of data 
publishers & consumers.  That will produce the virtuous circle needed to 
expand the Web of Data.  TIA. 

Have a nice weekend!

Cheers,

Bernadette Hyland, co-chair
