Abstract How can geographic information best be integrated with other data on the Web? How can we discover that different facts in different data sets relate to the same place, especially when 'place' can be expressed in different ways and at different levels of granularity? On behalf of the Smart Open Data project, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), in partnership with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the OGC GeoSPARQL Standards Working Group, the UK Government Linked Data Working Group, Google and Ordnance Survey, invite you to share your experiences, successes and frustrations in using GI.

Focused Crawling for Structured Data

Date 2014
Abstract The Web is rapidly transforming from a pure document collection to the largest connected public data space. Semantic annotations of web pages make it notably easier to extract and reuse data and are increasingly used by both search engines and social media sites to provide better search experiences through rich snippets, faceted search, task completion, etc. In our work, we study the novel problem of crawling structured data embedded inside HTML pages. We describe Anthelion, the first focused crawler addressing this task. We propose new methods of focused crawling specifically designed for collecting data-rich pages with greater efficiency. In particular, we propose a novel combination of online learning and bandit-based explore/exploit approaches to predict data-rich web pages based on the context of the page as well as using feedback from the extraction of metadata from previously seen pages. We show that these techniques significantly outperform state-of-the-art approaches for focused crawling, measured as the ratio of relevant pages and non-relevant pages collected within a given budget.

Abstract R is a shockingly dreadful language for an exceptionally useful data analysis environment. The more you learn about the R language, the worse it will feel. The development environment suffers from literally decades of accretion of stupid hacks from a community containing, to a first-order approximation, zero software engineers. R makes me want to kick things almost every time I use it. But there are a lot of great tools that are built in R. ggplot2 is first-in-class and Bioconductor packages are often essential. Sometimes there's aught to do but grin and bear (though never without a side of piss and moan). The documentation is inanely bad. I can't explain it. aRrgh is my attempt to explain the language to myself. aRrgh exists as a living document and will continue to grow -- it is not complete, but it got to a point where it seemed like it was probably useful so I decided to toss it on the web. It should be correct and it's a bug if it isn't. Please email me or file issues on Github. The goal of the document is to describe R's data types and structures while offering enough help with the syntax to get a programmer coming from another, saner language into a more comfortable place.

Abstract The Romans were perhaps the most impressive exponents of water resource management in preindustrial times with irrigation and virtual water trade facilitating unprecedented urbanization and socioeconomic stability for hundreds of years in a region of highly variable climate. To understand Roman water resource management in response to urbanization and climate variability, a Virtual Water Network of the Roman World was developed. Using this network we find that irrigation and virtual water trade increased Roman resilience to interannual climate variability. However, urbanization arising from virtual water trade likely pushed the Empire closer to the boundary of its water resources, led to an increase in import costs, and eroded its resilience to climate variability in the long term. In addition to improving our understanding of Roman water resource management, our cost–distance-based analysis illuminates how increases in import costs arising from climatic and population pressures are likely to be distributed in the future global virtual water network.

Abstract The project focuses on the four main residential neighbourhoods of the late Hellenistic city of Delos to examine urban development in relation to economic changes. By analysing the transformation of the residential neighbourhoods of Delos in relation to manufacturing activities, shopping and storage facilities as well as the construction of public buildings, the project examines the neighbourhoods as microcosms of the broader changes Delos underwent during the late Hellenistic period.

Abstract Wikidata is the central data management platform of Wikipedia. By the efforts of thousands of volunteers, the project has produced a large, open knowledge base with many interesting applications. The data is highly interlinked and connected to many other datasets, but it is also very rich, complex, and not available in RDF. To address this issue, we introduce new RDF exports that connect Wikidata to the Linked Data Web. We explain the data model of Wikidata and discuss its encoding in RDF. Moreover, we introduce several partial exports that provide more selective or simplified views on the data. This includes a class hierarchy and several other types of ontological axioms that we extract from the site. All datasets we discuss here are freely available online and updated regularly.

Abstract This week we will be conducting a "brownout" of all misconfigured GitHub Pages sites. If your GitHub Pages site's DNS is pointed at an out-of-date IP address, we will intermittently serve a warning page in place of your site's content. We will update our status site before we do so, and normal functionality will resume at the conclusion of the brownout. If you use a custom domain with GitHub Pages, please verify that your domain's DNS settings are properly configured to point to the most up-to-date GitHub IP addresses. This will ensure that your site remains available this week and continues to remain available after December 1st, 2014. For information on how to tell if your site is affected and what to do to fix it, see the original GitHub Pages Legacy IP Deprecation announcement or the setting up a custom domain with GitHub Pages documentation. Of course, if you have any questions, we're here to help.

Abstract The mission of the CSV on the Web Working Group, part of the Data Activity, is to provide technologies whereby data dependent applications on the Web can provide higher interoperability when working with datasets using the CSV (Comma-Separated Values) or similar formats. As well as single CSV files, the group will define mechanisms for interpreting a set of CSVs as relational data. This will include the definition of a vocabulary for describing tables expressed as CSV and locatable on the web, and the relationships between them.

Abstract We have every reason to believe in the very real historical connections, direct and indirect, linking the ancient Roman and the Chinese worlds. Indeed, these connections, and the comparative histories of these two ancient empires, have recently been the objects of renewed interest in the Western academy. Perhaps less well known is the parallel interest growing in China and the cooperative ventures that have begun to emerge in the writing of this new comparative history—from an Eastern perspective—of China and Rome.

Date 2009-02-03
Accessed 2014-11-05 19:22:10
Abstract Subversion is a version control system: It keeps a record of changes over the lifetime of a file, allowing you to revert to an earlier version at will. It's particularly useful for code projects, but it can handle, and be useful for, pretty much any type of file (e.g., for tutorials!). It's available as a package for most Linux distros, or as source from the web site.
