Example on how to use Linked Open Data (LOD). Have a look at: http://borrob.github.io/LOD_example/ or at http://ordinageoict.cloudapp.net/apps/rob.van.loon/lod_voorbeeld/index.html
This is a simple demo application that shows some basic Linked Open Data (LOD) principles. It uses the ['Basisregistratie Adressen en Gebouwen'] (http://www.kadaster.nl/bag) to search for a building using the zipcode and housenumber. The contour of the building is shown on the map. As a second step, the neighbourhood of the building is located and some basic statistics of this neighbourhood are shown. These statistics are derived from [Statistics Netherlands] (http://www.cbs.nl/en-GB/menu/home/default.htm).
One of the statistics is the average number of bars with a 1 km radius of the neighbourhood. Off course people will wonder: 'so where are these bars?' To answer that question, I also added a layer with 'pubs'. Theze location are extracted from the [OSM] (http://openstreetmap.org)} API and the pubs around the area are plotted as vector data on the map.
- [jQuery] (https://github.com/jquery/jquery): for general functionality
- [OpenLayers] (https://github.com/openlayers/ol3): to create the map and all its functionality
- [proj4js] (https://github.com/proj4js/proj4js): to deal with coordinate transformations
[Purce.css] (https://github.com/yahoo/pure/) makes the page look nice.
