Can I use linked data sources for my thesaurus?

PoolParty supports in the re-usage of linked data sources several ways like DBpedia, Freebase or Geonames.

Semi-automatic alignment between SKOS concepts of your thesaurus with resources from the LOD cloud allow further enrichment of your knowledge model, for example geographical coordinates of places can be retrieved from Geonames or further information about things, places or persons (like the biography) can be copied from DBpedia.

With SKOSsy and the auto population feature whole concept schemes and subtrees derived from DBpedia can be imported into your thesaurus. Additionally you can use PoolParty to publish thesauri as linked data.
