Crowdmapping Digital Social Innovation with Linked data

Presented at: The 12th Extented Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2015)

by Harry Halpin, Francesca Bria

The European Commision recently became interested in mapping digital social innovation in Europe. In order to understand this rapidly developing if little known area, a visual and interactive survey was made in order to crowd-source a map of digital social innovation, available at http://digitalsocial.eu. Over 900 organizations participated, and Linked Data was used as the backend with a Ruby on Rails Framework. The data was processed using SPARQL and network analysis, and a number of concrete policy recommendations resulted from the analysis.

Keywords: network analysis, digital social innovation, linked data, crwodmapping
