The aim of this poster is to present a proposal of how concept maps may be described, annotated and exposed on the Web of Data, also frequently known as the Semantic Web or Web 3.0. In doing so, the poster will first introduce the concept of concept maps 3.0 – that is, concept maps which utilize, and are enriched by, Web 3.0 technologies and resources. While concept maps 1.0 and 2.0 may be said to reflect earlier generations of the Web, the web of documents and the social web, the utilization of Web 3.0 technologies allows concept maps 3.0 to become machine-interpretable semantic web resources, and perhaps even semantic learning resources. This has several implications. One is that concept map discoverability can undoubtedly be improved through metadata annotation and the use of search engine interpretable vocabularies such as hts:// Also, a key feature of Web 3.0 is that it supports integration of data, and that it makes it possible to identify “meaning” of concepts with unique URL identifiers. By employing an open data repository like Wikidata (, which provides identifiers for all entities contained in it, it becomes possible to uniquely identify concepts and concept types in a map as well as integrate data about these same concepts found in external semantic web resources that make use of the same Wikidata identifiers. These are just some of the interesting possibilities of concept maps 3.0. Another possibility is the ability to generate varied and dynamic visualizations of integrated data automatically.
