Abstract

Web technologies have evolved to effectively support the creation and existence of Linked Open Data (LOD) within the web. However, the production and mass consumption of LOD have been a matter of debate over methodologies, best practices, and technologies that should be employed. Particularly in the case of government LOD, the production and publication lifecycle needs to follow a methodological approach. The paper presents publicspending.gr, a 5-star LOD project focusing on Greek Public spending as a case of LD application that is developed according to a methodological approach, following a specific Linked Data Production Life Cycle.

Keywords: LOD Production Life cycle, Web of Data, Greek Open Spending, Government Linked Data

JEL Classification: L86, H50, H72, H83
