Abstract

The Land Registry and Mapping Agency of the Netherlands ('Kadaster' in Dutch) is developing an online publication platform for sharing its geospatial data assets called KDP ('Kadaster Data Platform' in Dutch). One of the main goals of this platform is to better share geospatial data with the wider, web-oriented world, including its developers, approaches, and standards. Linked Open Data (W3C), GeoSPARQL (OGC), and Open APIs (OpenAPI Specification) are the predominant standardized approaches for this purpose. As a result, the most important spatial datasets of the Netherlands - including several key registries - are now being published as Linked Open Data that can be accessed through a SPARQL endpoint and a collection of REST APIs. In addition to providing raw access to the data, Kadaster Data Platform also offers developers functionalities that allow them to gain a better understanding about the contents of its datasets. These functionalities include various ways for viewing Linked Data . This paper focuses on two of the main components the Kadaster Data Platform is using for this purpose: FacetCheck and Data Stories.
