The service provided by the city of Ghent in Belgium encourages open data sharing by companies and other organizations It seeks to make available operating information about a business such as location, hours of operation, product offerings, and prices. The service encourages interoperation and interaction by applications providing information useful to both residents and visitors.API methods implement protocols of the Data Tank methodology to present open data about government and public services, health and social support functions, demographic information, jobseeking and employment, places of business, tourist attractions and festivals, etc. Returned data provide name and activities associated along with the location, expressed as latitude and longitude.
The Open data portal is a web-based public information systems that provides publication and management of information for reuse in an open, machine-readable format and together with their metadata. The platform is constructed in a manner that allows the complete extraction of the published information, or parts thereof.
The GeoGratis platform offers an application-programming interface (API) that provides developers with the ability to search, discover, assess and access data and information products such as maps, images, photos and documents.

HSLAYERS-NG: MODERN MAPPING FRAMEWORK.
In the case of the RDF data, as you know we have some sample applications that query datasets in virtuoso (currently holding more than 700 Million triples), and visualize this data, for example in hs_layer applications, e.g., http://ng.hslayers.org/examples/foodie-zones/ . The query is in SPARQL, and the application only specified that the result should be returned in JSON format. So, in this case Raitis, in the application, loops through the results and creates the features to be displayed. Hence, no particular JSON schema is used, the JSON returned is based on the query columns.
However, all the datasets have an underlying model (ontology), available at: https://github.com/FOODIE-cloud/ontology

IT development companies can use the assets while developing the systems in purpose of Public Service Management. The tool consists of functionalities of describing Public Services. The description dataset is based on the CPSV-AP vocabulary. This work is supported by Action 29 of the Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA2) Programme of the European Commission. The homogenisation of public service descriptions is thanks to their harmonisation using the Application Profile of the Core Public Service Vocabulary (CPSV-AP).

Specific case:GIS Data Provider - Geoserver/3D.
The GIS GE itself will be build of a server, which is able to process geolocated queries, an extension to it which is able to manage 3D data and a backend database where all geolocated data is saved. Because the GIS GE needs to serve both single user client apps (browsers) and multiuser enabled virtual spaces, an API will be defined to serve fluently both of the cases. In this API is a RESTful one, and allows both the browser app as well as realXtend virtual world platform to use it for downloading geolocated data. Overall, this GE is a simple way of hosting 3D geographical data for your application. (TO BE EXTENDED TO THE ENTIRE PROJECT)

|EU, INSPIRE validator||EU-INSPIRE-ETF|
ETF (European Testing Framework (http://docs.etf-validator.net/v2.0/index.html) validator
ETF is an open source testing framework for validating spatial data, metadata and web services in Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs).
The design of ETF is driven by three goals: be user-friendly, consistent with the standards and capable of testing all resources in an SDI.
User-friendly means that you do not have to be a developer to use it and that test reports include sufficient information for technical staff to understand the reasons for warnings and errors detected during the execution of tests. The user interface and the test reports support multiple languages, too.
The concepts in ETF are based on ISO 19105 and the OGC Specification Model which underpin the standards used in SDIs. Tests are organized in Executable Test Suites, which may be developed and executed using different tools to properly support all kinds of resources in an SDI. Currently supported are:
· SoapUI, a widely used tool for testing web services
· BaseX, an XML database, for testing sets of XML documents - including very large ones
· TEAM Engine, the tool used by the OGC CITE tests, to support the modern CITE tests developed using TestNG

As one from API candidate for INSPIRE hack we recognize HS Layers NG Map composition scheme supporting combination of data and services in different format (WMS, WFS, WCS, KML, GeoRSS, GML, GeoJSON, RDF and SOS.). i.e. detailed definition and metadata of each layer of the composition along with the composition itself, it can be saved as a JSON-styled text document. This JSON style document, is now used by Map Composer for creating of map composition. Map composer is providing the necessary functionality for displaying spatial data on a map and then creating a map composition (a thematic map) that can contain several data layers. Then, this document can be read and visualized by an HSLayers NG (http://ng.hslayers.org/ ) -based web application. This concept was used for by SDI4Apps, Open Transport Net and FOODIE project and now is supported in PoliVisu, EUXDAT and DataBio projects.
