Abstract:The Netherlands' Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping agency - in short Kadaster - has been sharing knowledge on land administration and geospatial information with other countries for decades. These data sets are published on their platform PDOK (i.e. 'Public services on the map'). As part of PDOK, the Kadaster shows the value of their data sets through data stories inside the PDOK Labs environment. Guided by the vision of the Semantic Web, linked open data (LOD) connects data sets through URIs which link together and form a giant linked collection of data. This thesis explores and creates a new data story using the linked open data sets of the Kadaster. The process is guided by a literature review on the creation of data stories and the Creative Technology Design Approach. The end result is "The CBS \& Kadaster Data Dashboard", a web-based dashboard which allows the user to gain insight into many measures (income, energy usage, demographics etc.) about the municipalities and neighbourhoods in the Netherlands. These measures can be used to gain insight into many societal issues. The report ends with an ethical discussion on data storytelling. The final dashboard will be published on PDOK Labs.
