Accommodations in Tuscany as Linked Data

The OpeNER Linked Dataset (OLD) contains 19.140 entries about accommodations in Tuscany (Italy). For each accommodation, itdescribes the type, e.g. hotel, bed and breakfast, hostel, camping etc., and other useful information, such as a short description, the Webaddress, its location and the features it provides. OLD is the linked data version of the open dataset provided by Fondazione SistemaToscana, the representative system for tourism in Tuscany. In addition, to the original dataset, OLD provides also the link of eachaccommodation to the most common social media (Facebook, Foursquare, Google Places and Booking). OLD exploits three commonontologies of the accommodation domain: Acco, Hontology and GoodRelations. The idea is to provide a flexible dataset, which speaksmore than one ontology. OLD is available as a SPARQL node and is released under the Creative Commons release. Finally, OLD isdeveloped within the OpeNER European project, which aims at building a set of ready to use tools to recognize and disambiguate entitymentions and perform sentiment analysis and opinion detection on texts. Within the project, OLD provides a named entity repository forentity disambiguation.
