Ordnance Survey Ireland Expands Collaboration with ADAPT

Posted: 12/12/16

Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) has just agreed a major targeted project to undertake with ADAPT.  The project, which is an SFI co-funded project, will commence in early 2017.

Speaking about the new collaboration Lorraine Mc Nerney, General Manager of OSi GeoSpatial Systems, said: “With the successful launch of http://data.geohive.ie in 2016 making available Ireland’s authoritative geospatial data as Linked Data, we are now in a position to drive forward to strategically expand the reach and scope of geospatial data that will be made available as Linked Data”.

The main focus of the project relates to enhancing the platform to manage commercial access to geospatial data in a Linked Data environment, starting with building data.

“Naturally we are delighted to be in a position to support OSi in executing its strategy”, commented Professor Declan O’Sullivan, “and the research challenges being addressed also are applicable in other data intensive domains”. There are also plans to undertake outreach activities through a series of workshops.
