The Dutch Environmental Law is a huge legislation project in which about 30 laws and 100 regulations about different environmental aspects (air, water, soil, etc.) are brought together in one single law and 4 regulations.
The Dutch Digital Heritage Network (NDE) started in 2015 by the national cultural heritage institutions as a joint effort to improve the visibility, usability and sustainability of the cultural heritage collections maintained by libraries, archives, museums and other institutions. About 1500 cultural heritage institutions are part of the NDE network. From the usability perspective the challenge is to realize a distributed network of heritage information that no longer needs aggregating and postprocessing of the data. This talk will focus on our approach for developing a new, cross-domain, decentralized discovery infrastructure for the Dutch heritage collections. A core element in our strategy is to encourage institutions to align their information with formal Linked Data resources for people, place, periodes, concepts and to publish their data as Linked Open Data. The NDE program works on making all relevant terminology sources available as Linked Data and provide facilities for term alignment and maintaining thesauri. PoolParty (Semantic Web Company), OpenSKOS (Open Source) and CultuurLink (Spinque) are important tools for doing this work.
Thesauri have since long been a key element for uniform search and annotation on large collections, such as the media collections preserved at Sound and Vision and VIAA. This talk will outline the work that has been done in a joint project between Sound & Vision and VIAA.

Talend is an innovative vendor of big data integration software. Their documentation was published on the web, but in a linear, book-type format. Their customers often used Google to look for support, and when they clicked through to the documentation, the information and the links on the page were often insufficient to provide the needed answer.
Across industry sectors, understanding, assessing and reporting for regulatory compliance is both a priority and a challenge for many organizations. Data-related laws, such as HIPAA, BASEL and GDPR, require an understanding of the sources, flows and destinations of data.

The Dutch cadastre has taken the lead by developing the geospatial data platform of the future and releasing it as beta in July 2016, on data.pdok.nl. This platform offers a semi-automated transformation from geospatial data (such as WFS, GML) to Linked Data (RDF), and on top of that APIs, including a SPARQL endpoint, view, test & documentation environment.
One of the key features of a successful online employment marketplace is the ability to match people with the most relevant job opportunities. Our business uses data about candidates, jobs and hirers to perform this task. One valuable datapoint in this process is the job titles, which we discover in semi-structured forms in a candidate’s employment history and in a hirer’s job advertisement.
