We are inviting proposals for presentations on experiences with search engine optimisation for geospatial data and related topics, including (but not limited to):

  • design and content of landing pages for data and services following SEO principles

  • exposing geospatial services in a Web-friendly way (e.g., by supporting an HTML presentation of the capabilities, as well as of the service "content")

  • use of Linked Data for improving the discoverability of geospatial meta/data

  • use of persistent HTTP URIs for datasets, services, and/or single geographic features / data items
