Describing local governments and their activities using Linked Data


The project is a civil effort to create a trackable representation of local government decisions and their history. We created an RDF vocabulary to describe the members, committees, meetings and resolutions of local governments. We used this vocabulary to build a database for the municipality of Alsónémedi (cca. 5000 inhabitants). Using this database one can visualize the decision history of each decision made and access all associated video recordings of meetings.

The vocabulary is available here:
