Abstract
    Marine Regions provides a standard of marine georeferenced locations, boundaries and regions for scientific and educational purposes as part of the LifeWatch project. To this end, Marine Regions creates, shares and maintains a hierarchical gazetteer. This gazetteer serves as a geographical backbone for a wide range of users, from biodiversity databases such as theWorld Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) over global fisheries initiatives such as Global Fishing Watch, to the maritime intelligence of Marine- Traffic. While there is a large diversity in how Marine Regions data are used, we wish to minimize the number of APIs we provide in order to reduce the maintenance burden. In this paper, we demonstrate how we have solved this by introducing i) the Marine Regions ontology described using Linked Data, ii) a mapping of Marine Regions to Linked Data in subject pages; and iii) a Linked Data Event Stream (LDES) that can be used for replication and synchronization. These contributions allow us to focus onthe open, semantic and meaningful publication of our data, and interested parties can then build APIs on top of the Event Stream, or derive useful subsets (e.g., based on geographical location). As part of this effort, Marine Regions entities are now described following the Linked Open Data principles and are available in various common formats through content negotiation. Additionally, the geometries of each data object are now directly accessible, without an extra web service call to an external OGC service.
