EarthCube Building Blocks: GeoLink -- leveraging semantics and linked data for data sharing and discovery in the geosciences

Principal Investigators:

Mark P. Schildhauer, and Matthew B. Jones

GeoLink will greatly enhance the capabilities for scientists to discover and interpret relevant geoscience data and knowledge. GeoLink will lower barriers to cross-repository data discovery and access, while respecting and preserving repository autonomy and heterogeneity. The cyberinfrastructure underlying our approach is extensible, sustainable, and affordable-- leveraging state of the art developments in Linked Open Data and formal semantics, grounded through shared Ontology Design Patterns. We will showcase the value of our approach by developing... more
