In this demonstration, we present DBpedia Mobile, alocation-centric DBpedia client application for mobile devicesconsisting of a map view and a Fresnel-based LinkedData browser. The DBpedia project extracts structuredinformation from Wikipedia and publishes this informationas Linked Data on the Web. The DBpedia dataset containsinformation about 1.95 million things, including 200,000geographic locations. DBpedia is interlinked with variousother location-related datasets. Based on the current GPSposition of a mobile device, DBpedia Mobile renders amap indicating nearby locations from the DBpedia dataset.Starting from this map, users can explore background informationabout locations and can navigate into interlinkeddatasets. DBpedia Mobile demonstrates that the DBpediadataset can serve as a useful starting point to explore theGeospatial Semantic Web using a mobile device.
