Linked Open Data Visualization with State Hopper: Learning about Europe and its Countries

We present State Hopper, an interactive multimedia application that uses Linked Open Data to generate a map-based educational game. A prototype of the system using Europe as map was implemented in a student project. Goal of the game is to move from country to country by learning facts about the countries like population, GDP, size, and others. Each movement from one country to another country on the map generates new insights and allows the player to capture new knowledge about the countries.
