ASTRIAGraph, the very first RDF-based Knowledge Graph for Space Traffic monitoring, is now live as a demo!

RDF-based knowledge graphs are the power behind so-called Semantic Web Technology, where entities are represented as “triples” (i.e. subject-predicate-object). These semantic triples are the engine that enables big data science and analytics. We now represent space objects in “triples” instead of a traditional database or catalog and this will enable our community to “go from […]
