The day after the conference we participated at the Linked Data Europe Workshop, that was organized by IQmulus, GeoKnow, LEO and MELODIES teams. Jens Lehmann of the University in Leipzig and Jonas Schulz from Ontos AG demonstrated our GeoKnow workbench, talked about the tools in our Linked Data Stack and had insights into other projects with the scope of Linked Geo Data and Big Data. Overall 10 projects were presented and the workshop ended with an informative discussion about Linked Geo Data tools replacing or extending existing GIS solutions.

Thanks to everyone, who organized the EDF and the workshop.
