WESO Headquartes Location

WESO is a multidisplinary research group from the Computer Science Department at the University of Oviedo. As a group, our main research activity involves semantic Web, eucation and technology transfer. We are a constantly evolving group, commited to with the development of of reseach proyects that empowers the use of semantic technologies and web standards.

Research Lines:

  • Semantic Architectures. Designing and developing architectures based on domain knowledge.
  • Collaborative Semantic Services. Improving existing solutions with a semantic collaborative approach.
  • Linked and Open Data. Offering new solutions for combining RDF vocabularies and published data.

projects

Web Index

Designed and produced by the World Wide Web Foundation, the Web Index is the world’s first measure of the World Wide Web’s contribution to social, economic and political progress in countries across the world. WESO has contributed to the project developing the portal and managing linked data for 2014 and older editions.

Landportal

The Portal allows for the collection, sourcing, and searching of otherwise fragmented and inaccessible data and information on land governance and land use from diverse sources, produced by governments, academia, international organizations, indigenous people and NGOs. WESO has participated in the web development.

Orbita

In ORBITA we provide a dynamic dataset visualization system in which the information could be represented in diferentes ways and having into account different user profiles. This will provide the data management to perform entity reconciliation, filtering, searching and sorting tasks.

Urban-RED

Urban-RED is funded by Call of Energizing Actions "Networks of Excellence" of the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. Urban-RED aims to promote reserch activity about sustainable urban development.

RETINAS

The main objective of RETINAS consist in research about techonologies of real time video analysis, semantic technologies and Soft Computing techniques ir order to be used in intelligent monitoring systems in heterogeneous environments.

ROCAS

The goal of ROCAS is to provide a distributed semantic reasoning system based on cloud computing where each node is able to cooperate with others in the reasoning process.This approach is independent of the inference engines used and it suggests division and distribution of task between nodes to complete inference processes.

ORIGIN

This project is focused in increasing the productivity in software development activities in outsourcing global scenarios as well as the improvement of the quality of the developed software.

10ders

The aim of this project is to show the activities to be performed in 10ders Project on e-Procurement. The platform planned by 10ders Project is intend to fulfill the needs of e-procurement at European, national and regional levels.

MLOD Patterns

Multilingual Linked Open Data Patterns.

Computex

Computex (Computing Statistical Indexes) can be seen as an extension of RDF Data Cube vocabulary to handle statistical indexes.

software

ShexCala

An RDF Shape Expressions validator implemented in Scala.

Wesby

Wesby is a linked data frontend that wraps your RDF resources with custom-built interfaces, effectively turning your SPARQL endpoints into rich HTML5 websites.

WesCountry

WesCountry is a library for data visualization that includes several types of charts as well as maps to compare countries.

MOLDEAS

It is part of project 10ders. It is a simple web interface to search public procurement notices that receives a set of CPV codes and a set of NUTS codes as input parameters. The result is presented using the classical tabular view and an EXHIBIT interface is also provided in order to get a faceted view of the results.

ONTOSPREAD

It is a Java API for the development, configuration, customization and execution of the Spreading Activation techniques in the field of the Semantic Web. These techniques have been used for the efficient exploration of knowledge bases built on semantic networks in Information or Document Retrieval problems.

ACOTA

ACOTA (Automatic Collaborative Tagging). It is a Java-based library for suggesting tags in a collaborative and automatic way. It is based on the use of ontologies to manage the tags and provide advanced services of automatic learning, reasoning, etc. It is supposed to be a component to implement the knowledge management with folksonomies.

CWR-Validator

Service for parsing and processing data from Common Works Registration (CWR) standard formats

wMERA

MERA (Musical Entities Reconciliation Architecture) consist of an architecture highly configurable designed to link music-related datasuources using string comparison techniques and semantic technologies. wMERA is a prototype of MERA.

WESO

It is the main repository for storing documentation, common source code, etc.
