I would like to incorporate the LOD (Linked Open Data) concept an app I built.
My app is a map where users search and can find points on the map, click them and get relative text and multimedia. Power users can add data via a CMS. So its a simple digital archive.
I do not want to find LOD to put in my app. I want to publish LOD. I want my app data to be in a LOD-compatible format so others can search them and put them in their apps or use them as they want.
How do I do that? Where do I start? Please advice me about starting points and books.
While I am at it, allow me another question. I want to put a section in my app where data relative to the user's choice appear. For example if the user searched for castles and clicked one, this section suggests him/her other similar castles. Will LOD help me implement this?
Thanks in advance
