Uriverse out the door

by Murray Woodman on Feb.12, 2010, under Tech

It’s with much pride and relief that I can announce that Uriverse, a site I have been working on for a few months, has been launched on the web. Uriverse is a site which aggregates content around certain well known subjects, namely the subjects found in Wikipedia. I have imported version 3.4 of the DBpedia data set (semantic version of Wikipedia) into the Drupal content management system. I have then attempted to present the data in an interesting way: faceted search, timelines, ratings, maps, photos, etc. If you are interested in how it was done please read the case study. There a fan page set up at Facebook too if you are interested. Cool, that’s stage one. Future iterations will incorporate more content from external sources into each of the pages. Enjoy.
