Additional libraries in use apart of the standard Python libs : rdflib and json

--group, -g : It possible retrive data from sevaral groups. The dafault group is “European Environment Agency (Applications)” Avalilable groups are listed in

How to run in Docker

Note: Work in progress. We will add it to Docker Hub once it is working properly with environment variables.

Build the Dockerfile locally.

git clone eea.docker.arcgis2rdf
cd eea.docker.arcgis2rdf
docker build -t arcgis2rdf .

Create a output directory with mkdir rdf. Run the docker container to create a RDF output in ./rdf

docker run -ti -v ./rdf:/var/local/arcgis2rdf:rw arcgis2rdf

Now you should see the rdf file with more rdf/arcgis_data.rdf
