Semantic Geographic Knowledge on a World Scale: Interlinking OpenStreetMap and Knowledge Graphs
March 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm GMT
“GISRUK Online Seminar Series 2021 – Seminar #1”
“The GISRUK (GIS Research UK) [Geographical Information Science Research UK] committee are delighted to announce the first seminar in the GISRUK Online Seminar Series 2021 where we welcome Prof. Dr. Elena Demidova, (Twitter) University of Bonn, Germany who will talk about ‘Semantic geographic knowledge on a world-scale – interlinking OpenStreetMap and knowledge graphs’.”
“OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a rich source of openly available volunteered geographic information on a world scale. However, representations of geographic entities in OSM are highly diverse and incomplete. Knowledge graphs (i.e. graph-based knowledge repositories) such as Wikidata, EventKG, and DBpedia are a rich source of contextual semantic information about geographic entities. For example, Wikidata contains over six million geographic entities, including locations, points of interest, mountain peaks, etc. Whereas knowledge graphs provide a wide range of complementary semantic information for geographic entities, interlinking between knowledge graphs and OSM is insufficient with the links mainly manually defined by volunteers. This lecture will introduce emerging approaches that address tighter integration of OSM and knowledge graphs; it gives particular attention to link discovery and semantic enrichment of OSM datasets.”
