Linked Earth Observation Data:The Projects TELEIOS and LEO

Lots of Earth Observation data has become available at no charge in Europe and the US recently and there is a strong
push for more open EO data. Open EO data that are currently made available by space agencies are not following the
linked data paradigm. Therefore, from the perspective of a user, the EO data and other kinds of geospatial data necessary
to satisfy his or her information need can only be found in di erent data silos, where each silo may contain only part
of the needed data. Opening up these silos by publishing their contents as RDF and interlinking them with semantic
connections will allow the development of data analytics applications with great environmental and nancial value. In
this paper, we present the advances in the areas of Semantic Web and Linked Data achieved by the European project
TELEIOS and give a short overview of the goal of the new European project LEO.
