Abstract. A growing number of spatial datasets are published every year. These can usually be found in dedicated web portals with different structures and specificities. However, finding the dataset that fits user needs is a real challenge as prior knowledge of these portals is needed to retrieve it efficiently. In this article, we present the problem of spatial dataset search and how the use of a geographic Knowledge Graph could improve it. A proposed direction for future work, extending these contributions, is then presented.
