iRail at ISWC2014

ISWC is the international conference on the Semantic Web where I’m presenting the recent development of iRail.be towards a hypermedia API. I’m hoping to gather feedback on our way of working and hope it can set an example for development of Linked Data interfaces in route planning. You can find the slides below:

You can test iRail as a linked data interface by running some command line commands:

#List all stations the Belgian railway company (NMBS) is operating on:
curl -H "accept: application/json" https://irail.be/stations/NMBS
#show all departures for a certain stop
curl -H "accept: application/json" https://irail.be/stations/NMBS/008896412
