Open data from Fukushima

This is just an extended tweet… Masahide Kanzaki has just posted an announcement on the LOD mailing list on releasing some data he collected on the radioactivity levels on different places in Japan, enriched with metadata (e.g., geo data or time). Though the original data were in PDF, the results are integrated in RDF with a SPARQL endpoint. He also added some visualization endpoint that gives a simple visualization of the SPARQL query results:

Visualization results for radioactivity data for Tokyo and Fukushima, using integrated datasets and SPARQL query

Simple but effective, and makes the point on the usage of open data in RDF… Thanks!
