"The concept of a Semantic Web, in which data is linked via machine-readable formats, is still far from reality, but some organizations and researchers are making progress.


At the recent International Semantic Web Conference, researchers from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute demonstrated how they re-rendered all the data from the Office of Management and Budget’s Data.gov Web sites into the Resource Description Framework. Their work was partially funded by grants from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and National Science Foundation.

"Our goal is to make the whole thing shareable and replicable for others to reuse," said project researcher Li Ding.

Rendering data into RDF, which is used to create the Linked Data necessary to the Semantic Web, can make it easier to interpose it with other sets of data to create entirely new datasets and visualizations, Ding said. He showed a Google Map graphic that interposed RDF versions of two different data sources from the Environmental Protection Agency, originally rendered in CSV files. "
