This chapter presents practical approaches to data processing in space, time and theme dimensions using current Semantic Web technologies. It describes how we obtain geographic and even data from Internet sources and also how we integrate then into an RDF store. We briefly introduce a set of functionalities in space, time and semantics. These functionalities are implemented based on our existing technology for main-memory based RDF data processing developed at the LSDIS Lab. A number of these functionalities are exposed as REST Web services. We present two sample client side applications that are developed using a combination of our services with Google maps service.
