[Ann] OSM Linked Geo Data extraction, browser & editor

Hi all,

We were working in the last weeks on bringing geo data derived from the 
marvelous OpenStreetMap project [1] to the data web. This work in 
progress is still far from being finished, however, we would like to 
share some first preliminary results:

* A *vast amount of point-of-interest descriptions* was extracted from 
OSM and published as Linked Data at <http://linkedgeodata.org>

* The *Linked Geo Data browser and editor* (available at 
<http://linkedgeodata.org/browser>) is a facet-based browser for geo 
content, which uses an OLAP inspired hypercube for quickly retrieving 
aggregated information about any user selected area on earth.

Further information can be also found in our AKSW project description:


Thanks go to Sebastian Dietzold, Jens Lehmann, Sebastian Hellmann, David 
Aumueller and other members of the AKSW team for their contributions.

Merry Christmas to everybody from Leipzig
