A blog post and a (good? best?) practice

Hello all,

Although I have been rather absent lately I would like to share two results
of recent activity:

Firstly, the Star Strek themed blog
<http://www.geodan.com/space-the-final-frontier/> I mentioned a while ago
was followed up by a blog that is inspired by another popular SF franchise
<http://www.geodan.com/dont-succumb-dark-side-bring-data-surface/>. The new
blog is about Spatial Data Infrastructures and data portals and about
alternative ways to provide universal usefulness for spatial data.

Secondly, I would like to mention that the website of the SPIDER research
project <http://www.spider-ld.org/> has gone public.The website, available
in Dutch and English, is about how Linked Data can aid sharing research
data in the humanities. A single cultural heritage use case involving data
about church buildings in the Netherlands was developed. Work on trying to
decently publish those data has led to recommendations that are shared on
the web site. Also there are two example applications, one with a map.
Apache Marmotta <http://marmotta.apache.org/> is used as the data platform.
A new version of Marmotta with support for GeoSPARQL was announced to be
released in the summer of last year. Unfortunately that has not happened
yet, so certain envisaged spatial functionality is lacking.
I have tried to behave with respect to good practices for publishing
(spatial) data on the web, so this case could be used as a reference. I
hope no one spots any bad practices... if so, I should fix it.

Regards,
Frans
