The Linked Media Framework is an easy-to-set-up server application that bundles central Semantic Web technologies to offer advanced services. The Linked Media Framework consists of LMF Core and LMF Modules. The core component of the Linked Media Framework is a Linked Data Server that allows you to expose data following the Linked Data Principles. The Linked Data Server implemented as part of the LMF goes beyond the Linked Data principles by extending them with Linked Data Updates and by integrating management of metadata and content and making both accessible in a uniform way. Its extensions are described in more detail in LinkedMediaPrinciples. In addition to the Linked Data Server, the LMF Core also offers a highly configurable Semantic Search service and a SPARQL endpoint. Setting up and using the Semantic Search component is described in SemanticSearch. Accessing the SPARQL endpoint is described in SPARQLEndpoint. Whereas the extension of the Linked Data principles is already conceptually well-described, work is proceeding on a proper specification and extension of Semantic Search and SPARQL endpoint for Linked Data servers.
MochiPHP is a lightweight framework for PHP that adopts component and page oriented design with a simple database and object-persistence library. Page oriented design: write a class and template pair per page. Form components hide complex HTML markup and user interaction handling. Persistent objects with auto-generated property accessors.
District Builder is a software application designed to give the public transparent, accessible, and easy-to-use mapping tools to draw the boundaries of their communities or to generate redistricting plans for their state and localities. The drawing of electoral districts is among the least transparent processes in democratic governance. All too often, redistricting authorities maintain power by obstructing public participation. The resulting districts embody the goals of politicians to the detriment of the representational interests of communities and the public at large. With District Builder, the public has the capacity to create and submit district plans for municipal, county, and state governments, support redistricting competitions, and keep the entire process open. In addition to legislative redistricting, District Builder's flexibility accommodates school districts, police districts, and many other redistricting needs.
Mole (Mobile Organic Localization Engine) provides room-level geoposition estimates using existing WiFi infrastructure. When you create an entry in the database by naming a room, your and other users' mobile devices will recognize when they are in that room. Other applications can poll or monitor the current room estimate and act accordingly, with context aware behavior. Because too much WiFi scanning drains batteries, it uses accelerometers and other tricks to keep scanning to a minimum while keeping update latency reasonable.
