Linked Open Data Projects

I am currently revising a directory of Canadian HGIS datasets and resources which will be published online by Montréal, plaque tournante des échanges. After the completion of this project, I will connect the project's 7, 500 title bibliography with linked data projects such as VIAF. As part of my master's thesis I am developping a pilot project to link the Répertoire du patrimoine culturel du Québec (online cultural heritage database) to linked and open databases (Dbpedia, FOAF).
