Abstract:


In this paper we present the theoretical framework to shift the New Zealand Open Data initiative to the next level by designing a scalable, queryable, and thus more accessible a Linked Data cloud, KiwiLOD. The KiwiLOD project will be executed in two stages. In the first stage a framework will be designed to transform the current open datasets (in comma separated and table formats) into Linked Data form. In the second stage, Natural Language Processing will be combined with an Information Extraction framework to transform the unstructured online and offline texts into Linked Data and made accessible via the cloud.
