There is an abundance of semi-structured reports on events being written and made available on the World Wide Web on a daily basis. These reports are primarily meant for human use. In this paper, the authors present a new linked data set and a method for automatically adding such RDF (Resource Description Framework) metadata to semi-structured reports to speed up the creation of geographical mashups and visual analytics applications. They showcase their method on piracy attack reports issued by the International Chamber of Commerce - Commercial Crime Services (ICC-CCS).
