PlanetData partner, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain received the yearly organized Linked Data Triplification Challenge prize during the I-SEMANTICS 2011 in Messe Congress Graz, Austria. Triplification Challenge awards prizes to the most promising application demonstrations and approaches in three fields related to Linked Data.

For the 4th time I-SEMANTICS hosted the Triplification Challenge, an event aiming at stimulating the availability of large quantities of RDF data and showcasing practical applications built on top of them. The Triplification Challenge aims to expedite this process by raising awareness and showcasing best practices. The Challenge consisted of an unspecific “open data track” and a dedicated “open government data track”. The prize money of 1000 Euro each was sponsored by Wolters Kluwer Germany.

The “open data track” challenge award went to Daniel Garijo, Boris Villazón and Oscar Corcho for their contribution A Provenance-Aware Linked Data Application for Trip Management and Organization.

The authors present El Viajero, an application for exploiting, managing and organizing Linked Data in the domain of news and blogs about travelling. El Viajero makes use of several heterogeneous datasets to help users to plan future trips, and relies on the Open Provenance Model for modeling the provenance information of the resources.
