Geospatial data is vital for many application scenarios, such as 
navigation, logistics, and tourism. At the same time, a large number of 
currently available datasets (both RDF and conventional) contain 
geospatial information. Examples include DBpedia, Wikidata, Geonames, 
OpenStreetMap and its RDF counterpart, LinkedGeoData. RDF stores have 
become robust and scalable enough to support volumes of billions of 
records (RDF triples). Despite improving implementations and standards 
such as GeoSPARQL, traditional geospatial data management systems still 
outperform them in functionality, efficiency and scalability regarding 
geospatial content. On the other hand, geospatial information systems 
(GIS) can benefit from Linked Data principles (e.g., schema agility and 

The goal of the GeoLD workshop is to provide an opportunity for the 
Semantic Web community to focus on the need for effective and efficient 
production, management and utilization of Geospatial information within 
Linked Data. Emphasis will be given to works describing novel 
methodologies, algorithms and tools that advance the current state of 
the art with respect to efficiency or effectiveness. We welcome both 
mature solutions, as well as ongoing works that present promising results.
