Evaluating linked data location based services using the example of Stolpersteine

Timo Homburg, Klaus Böhm, Nicole Bruhn, and Gregor Hubrich

Keywords: Stolperstein, linked data, app, location based service

Abstract. In this publication we introduce a linked data powered application which assists users to find so-called Stolpersteine, stones commemorating Jewish victims of the second world war. We show the feasibility of a dedicated location based service as an app using linked data resources and evaluate this approach against local data sources gathered by communities to find out if the current linked data environment can equally and/or sufficiently support an application in this knowledge domain.
