*6th International Workshop on Geospatial Linked Data* at ESWC 2024

Geospatial data is vital for both traditional applications like navigation,
logistics, and tourism and emerging areas like autonomous vehicles, smart
buildings and GIS on demand. Spatial linked data has recently transitioned
from experimental prototypes to national infrastructure. However the next
generation of spatial knowledge graphs will integrate multiple spatial
datasets with the large number of general datasets that contain some
geospatial references (e.g., DBpedia, Wikidata). This integration, either
on the public Web or within organizations has immense socio-economic as
well as academic benefits. The upsurge in Linked data related presentations
in the recent Eurogeographics data quality workshop shows the deep interest
in Geospatial Linked Data (GLD) in national mapping agencies. GLD enables a
web-based, interoperable geospatial infrastructure. This is especially
relevant for delivering the INSPIRE directive in Europe. Moreover,
geospatial information systems benefit from Linked Data principles in
building the next generation of spatial data applications e.g., federated
smart buildings, self-piloted vehicles, delivery drones or automated local
authority services.

This workshop invites papers covering the challenges and solutions for
handling with GLD, especially for building high quality, adaptable,
geospatial infrastructures and next-generation spatial applications. We aim
to demonstrate the latest approaches and implementations and to discuss the
solutions to challenges and issues arising from research and industrial

The following topics of interest are covered by GeoLD2024.

*Interoperability and Integration*

   - Geospatial Linked Data vocabularies and standards (GeoSPARQL, INSPIRE,
   W3C, OGC)
   - Extraction/transformation of Geospatial Linked Data from native
   geospatial data sources
   - Integration (schema mapping, interlinking, fusion) techniques for
   Geospatial RDF Data
   - Enrichment, quality and evolution of Linked Data with Geospatial
   - Machine Learning improving Geospatial Linked Data processing
   - Natural Language Processing, especially Large Language Models for
   improving GLD processing

*Big Geospatial Data Management*

   - Distributed solutions for Geospatial Linked Data management (storing,
   querying, mapping)
   - Algorithms and tools for large scale, scalable Geospatial Linked Data
   - Efficient Indexing and Querying of Geospatial Linked Data
   - Geospatial-specific Reasoning on RDF Data
   - Ranking techniques on querying Geospatial RDF Data
   - Advanced querying capabilities on Geospatial RDF Data

*Utilization of Geospatial Linked Data*

   - Benchmarking of Geospatial Linked Data applications
   - Geospatial Linked Data in social web platforms and applications
   - Geospatial linked data applications for indoor navigation
   - Visualization models/interfaces for browsing/authoring/querying
   Geospatial Linked Data
   - Real-world applications/use cases/paradigms using Geospatial Linked
   - Evaluation/comparison of tools/libraries/frameworks for Geospatial
   Linked Data
   - Data governance models for Geospatial Linked Data
