FAO Geopolitical Ontology in RDF-LOD version

The FAO Country Profiles portal is embracing the W3C Linked Open Data (LOD) initiative and recently released its Geopolitical Ontology in RDF format, including reference data used to manage country-based information and relevant key resources. The portal is also exposing some data in RDFa, which improves search and reuse.

The term 'Linked Data' refers to a set of best practices for publishing and connecting structured data on the Web. To learn more about LOD, listen to Tim Berners-Lee’s talk on "The next Web of open, linked data".
