NKUA partner publishes paper on challenges for qualitative spatial reasoning in Linked Geospatial Data

Abstract: Linked geospatial data has recently received attention, as researchers and practitioners have started tapping the wealth of geospatial information available on the Web. We discuss some core research problems that arise when querying linked geospatial data, and explain why these are relevant for the qualitative spatial reasoning community. The problems are presented in the context of our recent work on the models stRDF and stSPARQL and their extensions with indefinite geospatial information.

CWI partner publishes the first paper on SciQL, a query language for Science Applications

Abstract: Scientific applications are still poorly served by contemporary relational database systems. At best, the system provides a bridge towards an external library using user-defined functions, explicit import/export facilities or linked-in Java/C# interpreters. Time has come to rectify this with SciQL, a SQL query language for scientific applications with arrays as first class citizens.
