Dear All,

Monday Aug. 27 at 11AM ET / 5PM CET Amrapali Zaveri [1] from Agile
Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web (AKSW) [2] at the University of
Leipzig will tell us about WHO's Global Health Observatory (GHO) as
Linked Data:

Excerpt below:
"The data contained in this dataset was extracted from WHO's Global
Health Observatory (GHO) and is provided as Linked Data here.
GHO provides access to statistical data and analyses for important
health problems, which is categorized by either country, indicator or
topic. One such dataset contains statistical information of the
mortality and burden of disease classified according to the death and
DALY (disability-adjusted life year) estimates grouped by countries.
The GHO dataset was transformed from Excel spreadsheets to RDF using
The RDF Data Cube Vocabulary and contains about 3 million triples. The
data currently published is from the year 2004 and will be updated as
and when GHO publishes new data. WHO allows reproduction of it's data
for non-commercial purposes. For more information, see WHO Copyright

Details for the teleconference will follow.
