The spatial@linkedscience is a community-driven effort to create methods, vocabularies, tools and data for showing how and why spatial information can efficiently be used in scientific settings.
Linked Data from spatial@linkedscience contains a growing collection of metadata for proceedings of conferences on topics related to geographic information science. So far, it contains most of the metadata for the major Geographic Information conferences: GIScience, COSIT, ACM GIS, and AGILE. The data can be explored using an interactive tool (see figure below for a screenshot).
Publication about spatial@linkedscience will be presented at GIScience2012. Here are the publication details:
