The KnowWhereGraph project aims at providing a densely interlinked knowledge graph for environmental intelligence applications and situational awareness services (area briefings) that enrich the data of decision-makers and data scientists with pre-integrated data custom-tailored to their spatial area of interest, thereby vastly reducing the time needed to answer questions such as "What is here?", "What happened here before?", "Who knows more?", or "How does it compare to....". The project's graph interlinks data about places with various products such as soil maps, climate characteristics, historic events, and so on.
With the increase of fires through the United States and globally, and especially for instance, on the west coast, we are facing more and more often situations like this, where winegrowing regions are, for instance, threatened by wildfires. Krzysztof Janowicz is an associate professor in University of California, Santa Barbara and he is here to introduce to the audience KnowWhereGraph. KnowWhereGraph gives improvement to data-driven decision making involving geographic data. The KnowWhereGraph could help identify risks due to earlier issues such as wildfires and simulate dispersion of ashes allowing users to be flexible with data and being able to create more options when being decisive.
