The Smart Points of Interest data set is the seamless and open resource of POIs that is available for other users to download, search or reuse in applications and services.
Its principal target is to provide information as Linked data together with other data set containing road network.
The added value of the Smart approach in comparison to other similar solutions consists in implementation of linked data, using of standardized and respected datatype properties and development of the completely harmonized data set with uniform data model and common classification.
The SDI4Apps team developed a seamless open database of POIs, which will be distributed as 5‑star Linked Open Data to be accessible for all users.
The essential core of the model was extended by several attributes which are integral components of some original data and could be helpful for tourist purposes.
The SPOI data set is created as a combination of global data (selected points from OpenStreetMap) and local data provided by the SDI4Apps partners or data available on the web.
The SPOI data set is published via SPARQL endpoint which enables comfortable, efficient and standardized querying of data.
