Abstract. Within the GeoKnow project, various tools are developed and integrated which aim to simplify managing geospatial Linked Data on the web. In this article, we summarise the state of the art and describe the status of open geospatial data on the web. We continue by presenting the Linked Data Stack as technical underpinning of GeoKnow and give a first presentation of the platform providing a light-weight integration of those tools.
