Semantic Search Mobile is a mobile application that allows to browse the almost 3,100 Open Access Data and Documents Repositories integrated in the CHAIN-REDS project’s Knowledge Base, presented either through geographic maps or table. Tapping on a marker on a map or on an element of a table, one gets redirected to the corresponding repository in order to search inside it. The app also allows to use the CHAIN-REDS Semantic Search Engine to search across the more than 30 million resources contained in the Knowledge Base and enriched by means of Semantic Web technologies. For each record found, a short description of the corresponding resource is provided. Tapping on an element of the list, one can access a detailed view with direct links to the document and, if existing, to the related data.
