SAKE Lab member Fotis Kokkoras and final year student Thanos Pigadas participated in a hackathon event on open data exploitation, organized by Innovathens. They presented the web version of fuelGR, a family of applications built around the fuelGR API, which in turn is fed with prices of the Greek fuel market, provided by http://www.fuelprices.gr/. The application ranked at first place and received exceptional comments.
Publicspending.net is a research initiative aiming to demonstrate the usefulness of economic Linked Open Data in promoting transparency and innovation.

A stemmer for the Greek language is available at http://deixto.com/greek-stemmer/. It can be called directly with http calls, passing as parameters a comma separated list of words. The result (stems) is returned in comma separated plain text format. Here is an example call:
UltraCl@rity is a search engine indexing all the documents published through the Cl@rity project (Διαύγεια – Greek Open Government Data). It was created because Cl@rity (and now eProcurement.gov.gr, as well) do not provide adequate search functions, although they are both a great start.
Using the DEiXTo generated RSS feed for the Greek e-procurement platform, UltraCl@rity now provides full text search on these data, as well.
Using Web scraping and DEiXTo (http://deixto.com) we have built an RSS feed for the Greek e-procurement platform. The goal of this effort is twofold:
- allow people subscribe to the feed and get the latest tenders automatically through the use of an RSS reader and
- help developers build innovative applications around public e-procurement data by pulling an updated feed on a daily basis.
The Greek pages of the site are now available.
