Global Integration of Public Sector Information

Koumenides, Christos, Alani, Harith, Shadbolt, Nigel and Salvadores, Manuel (2010) Global Integration of Public Sector Information At Web Science Conference 2010, United States. 26 - 27 Apr 2010.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper deals with technological methods for consolidating assets lists of available public sector information (PSI) for re-use. In this direction, the effort is to review the state of the art in delivering access to PSI throughout the world and to prioritize the necessary engagements for joining available PSI catalogues. We propose an architectural framework grounded on Semantic Web technologies to deliver a global platform for federated searching. A speculative survey of available PSI portals is presented, and the initial implementation, results, and analysis of the proposed architecture are covered in detail.
