AquaINFRA Participation:

On Wednesday 29th May, AquaINFRA partner, Pekka Latvala, a GIS expert at the Finnish Geospatial Research Institute FGI, will present on using Python to enhance geospatial metadata queries. The Python-based web service employs SPARQL queries to retrieve related terms from an RDF-based ontology or thesaurus data, offering improved search capabilities.

As part of the AquaInfra project, the Data Discovery and Access Service (DDAS) focuses on federated metadata search and data access. Latvala's Python-based web service within DDAS enhances metadata queries by providing related terms search, utilizing SPARQL queries on RDF-based ontology or thesaurus data. The service incorporates django, django REST framework, and SPARQLWrapper libraries, with RDF data hosted on the Apache Jena Fuseki SPARQL server. Currently using GEMET thesaurus data, the service allows users to control the inclusion of linked concepts in the search results.
