Associates local tags with semantic resources

Project Description

CKAN SemanticTags plugin gives the possibility for Open Data Portals to atribute semantic tags to their datasets.

What can you do with the SemanticTags plugin?
With the SemanticTags plugin you can:

- Relate your CKAN tags with semantic objects
- Define custom RDF predicates for linking your datasets with the Linked Open Data cloud
- Connect several CKAN instances through the use of global semantic tags

Why a SemanticTags plugin?
CKAN core offers an RDF version of each database, which gives access to all metadata in Linked Open Data format. However, it does not allow linking the database to external semantic resources. SemanticTags fills this gap, allowing datasets to be tagged with LOD resources.
