Linked Events in Helsinki

Linked Events provides event and place information for the Helsinki capital region in linked data. It uses data from the Visithelsinki.fi service.

This is site is a testbed for different event serializations and apis. It's aim at this point is to provide actual usable implementations of the same underlying data so event apis can be compared to each others.

The issues about API can be discussed in hri.fi discussion forum.
