    Abstract

    There are two important trends bringing changes and new opportunities into media consumption: the emergence of user-created content and Semantic Web technologies. In this paper we present an application that shows how these technologies can be combined to create an enjoyable media consumption experience. The application development work served also as a feasibility test of the maturity of Semantic Web technologies for media sector applications. The application contains material to the historical Ox road of Häme, and this way it also supports enjoying cultural heritage. The results indicated that users enjoyed using the application. Several ontologies were utilised, most of which were based on existing ontologies or taxonomies. With their help, it was possible to offer multiple views and exploratory routes into the available content. Further development can, among other things, be made in improving search strategies and in utilising user-created metadata for both for enriching ontologies and as an indication of user interests.
