Smart City Artifacts Web Portal

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9989)


In the smart city domain, many projects and works are generating essential information. Open and efficient sharing of this information can be beneficial for all parties ranging from researchers, engineers or even governments. To our knowledge, there is currently no full-fledged semantic platform which properly models this domain, publishes such information and allows data extraction using a standard query language. To complement this, we developed and deployed the Smart City Artifacts web portal. In this paper, we present our approach used within this platform and summaries some of its technical features and applications.
