The Leibniz Center for Law at the University of Amsterdam announced yesterday that it has published all Dutch national statutes and regulations, free on the Web, in CEN MetaLex XML and RDF Linked Data, at The MetaLex Document Server.
According to Dr. Rinke Hoekstra, the database also includes “the body of regulations that govern the entire kingdom of The Netherlands (i.e. the former Dutch Antilles and Aruba).”
The technology underlying the service is explained in Dr. Hoekstra’s recent presentation, The MetaLex Document Server – Legal Documents as Versioned Linked Data.
According to Dr. Hoekstra, a SPARQL endpoint for the Linked Data is available at http:doc.metalex.eu:8000/sparql .
