Linked Data : Current Status

Linked Data : Current Status
What is Linked Data? The Semantic Web is a Web of Data — of dates and titles and part numbers and chemical properties and any other data one might conceive of. The collection of Semantic Web technologies (RDF, OWL, SKOS, SPARQL, etc.) provides an environment where application can query that data, draw inferences using vocabularies, etc. However, to make the Web of Data a reality, it is important to have the huge amount of data on the Web available in a standard format, reachable and manageable by Semantic Web tools. Furthermore, not only does the Semantic Web need access to data, but relationships among data should be made available, too, to create a Web of Data (as opposed to a sheer collection of datasets). To achieve and create Linked Data, technologies should be available for a common format (RDF), to make either conversion or on-the-fly access to existing databases (relational, XML, HTML, etc).

W3C | Semantic Web Case Studies Case studies include descriptions of systems that have been deployed within an organization, and are now being used within a production environment. Use cases include examples where an organization has built a prototype system, but it is not currently being used by business functions. The list is updated regularly, as new entries are submitted to W3C. There is also an RSS1.0 feed that you can use to keep track of new submissions. Please, consult the separate submission page if you are interested in submitting a new use case or case study to be added to this list. (), by , , Activity area:Application area of SW technologies:SW technologies used:SW technology benefits: A short overview of the use cases and case studies is available as a slide presentation in Open Document Format and in PDF formats.

Linked Data Basics for Techies - OpenOrg Intended Audience This is intended to be a crash course for a techie/programmer who needs to learn the basics ASAP. It is not intended as an introduction for managers or policy makers (I suggest looking at Tim Berners-Lee's TED talks if you want the executive summary). It's primarily aimed at people who're tasked with creating RDF and don't have time to faff around. It will also be useful to people who want to work with RDF data. Please Feedback-- especially if something doesn't make sense!!!! If you are new to RDF/Linked Data then you can help me! I put a fair bit of effort into writing this, but I am too familar with the field! If you are learning for the first time and something in this guide isn't explained very well, please drop me a line so I can improve it. Warning Some things in this guide are deliberately over-simplified. Alternatives If you don't like my way of explaining things, then there's other introductions out there; (suggest more!)

The Linking Open Data cloud diagram SPARQL 1.1 Protocol 4.1 Security There are at least two possible sources of denial-of-service attacks against SPARQL protocol services. First, under-constrained queries can result in very large numbers of results, which may require large expenditures of computing resources to process, assemble, or return. Another possible source are queries containing very complex — either because of resource size, the number of resources to be retrieved, or a combination of size and number — RDF Dataset descriptions, which the service may be unable to assemble without significant expenditure of resources, including bandwidth, CPU, or secondary storage. Since a SPARQL protocol service may make HTTP requests of other origin servers on behalf of its clients, it may be used as a vector of attacks against other sites or services. SPARQL protocol services may remove, insert, and change underlying data via the update operation. Different IRIs may have the same appearance.

Linked Data Platform 1.0 5.1 Introduction This section is non-normative. Many HTTP applications and sites have organizing concepts that partition the overall space of resources into smaller containers. To which URLs can I POST to create new resources? This document defines the representation and behavior of containers that address these issues. This document includes a set of guidelines for creating new resources and adding them to the list of resources linked to a container. The following illustrates a very simple container with only three members and some information about the container (the fact that it is a container and a brief title): Example 1 # The following is the representation of # # @base < @prefix dcterms: < This example is very straightforward - there is the containment triple with subject of the container, predicate of ldp:contains and objects indicating the URIs of the contained resources. Example 2 Example 3 Example 4 Example 5
