Linked Data Conversion
An initial workflow for converting IATI data into Linked Data, and uploading this to a triple store, has been developed in prototype.
Linked data can support the integration of diverse data sources and extra contextual information linked to IATI project information, as well as providing a flexible way to query IATI data via SPARQL.
As an XML standard, IATI does not yet have an agreed linked data vocabulary, but a proof of concept has been established, and a proposal has been made for updates to the standard to better accomodate linked data.
The Research for Development prototype makes use of IATI linked data and research data to present a widget that queries that data via SPARQL to find research related to a given IATI ID.
The CharityViz widget demo provides a contextual information widget using data accessed with SPARQL.
Details of the original proof of concept are on AidInfoLabs.
