Open Public Data

Welcome to the Local Data Ecosystem

This is a prototype from iStandUK to illustrate how data from many sources can be read in real-time over the web, and linked to give a localised view.

The data is drawn from various Linked Data sources and endpoints.

How it works?

Please follow the tutorial to walk through how to

  • create shapes
  • apply shapes to datasets
  • list, filter, present data
  • create widgets

You can also make comments on the document, where we would like to hear

  • feedback on the prototype and how it might be improved
  • useful applications of real-time linked data


We use the proposed SHACL ( Shapes Constraint Language ) standard to define the classes, and properties in each dataset, and the relationships between them.
