This collaboration with the DataPublica start-up brings new applications concerned with Linked Data. Data produced and made public by numerous public administration offices (in France, Europe, and the world) opens many perspectives for integrating, analyzing, and combining data sources into added-value information sources. Time is also an essential dimension here; so is data matching and reconciliation, since the same entity may be referenced from many different viewpoints and reconciliation is needed when joining data sources. Users of such applications could be public administration analyzing the impact of its policies, social scientists and journalists which already work on the data (but gather it with much difficulty) etc.
