Last week on the 7th of March a PLDN symposium was held to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Linked Data Platform Netherlands. During this meeting, different speakers have answered the question: What has been achieved and what are the challenges for the near future?
Taxonic is proud to remain sponsor in the future. Taxonic has been involved from the beginning in setting up PLDN and has, among other things, ensured that SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization System) is now on the ‘comply or explain’ list of Forum Standaardisatie, a Dutch standards body. This means that organizations within the Dutch public sector must apply this standard. SKOS is a standard that applies the principles of the web to knowledge retrieval systems.
