*"Moving from mere open data to the creation of knowledge spaces"*

*COST action TD1210 “Knowescape” workshop @ OKCON, September 19th Geneva.*





*There is an increasing amount of data sets being made available online
through an increasing amount of data portals. Just like the Web, this vast
amount can be exploited in two ways: search and exploration. The main
difference is that searching consists in finding specific data sets
matching a given set of criterion while exploring relates to the
opportunistic hopping from dataset to dataset following interesting links.
 Whereas the former can deal with isolated data silos, the later relies a
lot on the presence of links across datasets and the portals. When such
links are established we move from scarce data sharing to the creation of a
global interconnected knowledge space that can be easily browsed for

*In this one day workshop we will discuss, and experiment with, the
practicalities of data exploration through interconnected data source. We
will also look at how the Linked Data publication principles facilitate
this process. The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:*
