One of the main goals of the GeoShare project is to support users with geographically distributed environmental data. The data provided by the partners and their subcontractors cover three distinct thematic topics, namely urban and environmental planning, tourism, an well as labor and education. The data are geographically distributed among the GeoShare partners, and they are syntactically, structurally, and semantically heterogeneous. The key idea behind our SemanticWeb Challenge submission is to use the Bremen University Semantic Translator for Enhanced Retrieval (BUSTER) to provide an intelligent access to GeoShare data sources and information services.
