I'm a post-doctoral fellow at the Big Data Institute at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. I work in data mining and using linked open data approaches for maritime security application and ontology development.
|Interest in LODLAM
I'd like to build on the momentum of the previous lodlam to push for better opportunities to link data sets together and create working groups and/or funding applications for the following:
* Great War related automated link generation services.
* Working groups to share ideas about poorly defined geolocation problems such as trenches and relative location descriptions (e.g.: north of the farm).
* Exporting environmental and remote sensing LOD for better reporting. I have an experimental weather station that does this and it would be interesting to compare notes with other people who thinker.
* Putting together briefing packages for government ministers to get them to open their data.
|Linked Open Data Projects
I've been working on the Muninn Project a linked open data project about the First World War. I have extensive experience in developing ontologies and deploying them for real world use.
