The enviroCar SPARQL endpoint is a feature that enables the enviroCar data to be queried in RDF. This feature creates an open endpoint for crawlers and other bots and allows them to crawl the data and let the data be part of the LOD cloud. With the enviroCar server’s current architecture, it is possible to query the data by converting the entities on the fly into RDF when a particular kind of request is made. Please find a more detailed description about the project’s evolution on the SPARQL EndPoint wiki page.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve embarked on the task of moving the data from mongoDB (the database of choice for the enviroCar server) and cloning the entire database content to a raw data type, independent of database formats. My task also involved solving the problem of trying to remove the tight coupling of frameworks with the generation and retrieval of data. This would make more data interchanging processes more commonly known as ETL processes. This is a design for future implementation and can be found here.
