The Local e-Government Standards Body (LeGSB): Meaningful Local Linked Data

Following up on Carol Tullo’s mention of Linked Data, the presentation from our fourth speaker, Paul Davidson, brought some of the general issues closer to home. With examples from his own local authority in Sedgemoor, he showed us what it means in practice to implement the government’s policy aims for Linked Data. It is not enough just to provide any old data set. We also need some common open standards and common infrastructure in order to make open local data meaningful, comparable and linkable.
