TenForce Speaks at Open Belgium 2018

We are happy to announce TenForce as partner and speaker at Open Belgium 2018, a community-driven annual conference about Open Knowledge and Open Data, hosted in Brussels on March 12th. It’s packed with interesting talks and discussions about the openness of Belgium, from a local point of view to a European perspective.  Three of our colleagues will be there to talk about how to smartly use data and linked open data in the field of touristic services and utility roadworks.

A Journey to Linked Open Touristic Data

Touristic information lends itself perfectly to be rendered and consumed as linked open data. Because typically touristic data are generated by different stakeholders and are distributed and enriched to be reused, in as much as possible contexts and apps and by as much as possible tourists and touristic agencies. We exemplify why linked data must become the native format in the processes of every cultural agency and not just ‘the last step before publishing” as it is still too often conceived. More info.

Eliminating Data Roadblocks to Get By Traffic Roadblocks Without Pain

We experience daily the annoyance caused by infrastructure works. Governments at all levels, utility providers (water, electricity, gas, telecom, sewer), and public transport are increasingly exchanging data on the planning and execution of these activities. Being partner in these processes, we give an overview of the exchanged information embedded in a vision on how open data processing can create an open data landscape in which government and private sector collaborate.
