GeoE3 Task 2.3: Semantic Search (First Results)

This data story serves to demonstrate the potential that enriching metadata with more extensive keywords lists has for improving the semantic searchability and findability of digital resources across Europe. The following are the first results of Task 2.3 of GeoE3 exploring the implementation of semantic searchability.

The following table provides an overview of all countries that include a keyword associated with 'address' in their metadata. These keywords have, in some cases, been added to existing metadata records based on a manual enrichment step for the purpose of highlighting the potential that metadata enrichment has for semantic searchability of datasets.

The following table provides an overview of all countries that include a keyword associated with 'building' in their metadata. These keywords have, in some cases, been added to existing metadata records based on a manual enrichment step for the purpose of highlighting the potential that metadata enrichment has for semantic searchability of datasets.
