GNAF Linked Data dataset

A Linked Data version of PSMA's G-NAF dataset.

About

API

This code builds a API to delivery the contents of the G-NAF, the Geocoded National Address File from PSMA on the web, according to Linked Data and Semantic Web principles. This code makes heavy use of the Python pyLDAPI module which is based on Python's well-known Flask web API framework.

The data accessed is the copy of the G-NAF available freely on the data.gov.au/ catalogue:

Data model

This API delivers the GNAF data according to the GNAF ontology which is a Semantic Web data model using the Web Ontology Language, OWL. This set theory-based modelling language creates graph models of data connecting all elements, nodes, via edges, which in OWL are typed relationships.

Use

Go to the landing page of the dataset, http://linked.data.gov.au/dataset/gnaf and navigate the various lists of objects, service end points etc. from there.
