Abstract

International open government initiatives are releasing an increasing number of “raw” government datasets directly to citizens via the Web, creating new opportunities but imposing burdens inherent to the problems of large-scale distributed data integration, collaborative data manipulation and transparent data consumption. With the goal of fostering a more scalable and interoperable Open Government Data ecosystem, the Tetherless World Constellation (TWC) team has developed the Linking Open Government Data (LOGD) Portal based on Semantic Web technologies. The TWC LOGD Portal is both an open source infrastructure supporting government data conversion, publishing, enhancement and access, and a vibrant community portal that educates and serves the growing international community of developers, data curators, and end users.
