The Linking Open Data cloud diagram
This web page is the home of the LOD cloud diagram. This image shows datasets that have been published in Linked Data format, by contributors to the Linking Open Data community project and other individuals and organisations. It is based on metadata collected and curated by contributors to the Data Hub. Clicking the image will take you to an image map, where each dataset is a hyperlink to its homepage. The diagram is maintained by Richard Cyganiak (DERI, NUI Galway) and Anja Jentzsch (HPI). For any questions and comments, please email and

Linked Data - Design Issues Up to Design Issues The Semantic Web isn't just about putting data on the web. It is about making links, so that a person or machine can explore the web of data. With linked data, when you have some of it, you can find other, related, data. Like the web of hypertext, the web of data is constructed with documents on the web. However, unlike the web of hypertext, where links are relationships anchors in hypertext documents written in HTML, for data they links between arbitrary things described by RDF,.

The largest multilingual encyclopedic dictionary and semantic network This page describes how you can query BabelNet through an HTTP interface that returns JSON. You can append the key parameter to the HTTP requests as shown in the examples below. To obtain an API key please read the key & limits page. All requests must be executed using the GET method and they should include the Accept-Encoding: gzip header in order to obtain compressed content. W3C Data Activity - Building the Web of Data More and more Web applications provide a means of accessing data. From simple visualizations to sophisticated interactive tools, there is a growing reliance on the availability of data which can be “big” or “small”, of diverse origin, and in different formats; it is usually published without prior coordination with other publishers — let alone with precise modeling or common vocabularies. The Data Activity recognizes and works to overcome this diversity to facilitate potentially Web-scale data integration and processing. It does this by providing standard data exchange formats, models, tools, and guidance. The overall vision of the Data Activity is that people and organizations should be able to share data as far as possible using their existing tools and working practices but in a way that enables others to derive and add value, and to utilize it in ways that suit them. Achieving that requires a focus not just on the interoperability of data but of communities.

Datasets The primary aims of the UPTAP initiative are to: build capacity in secondary data analysis; promote the use of large-scale social science data sets, both qualitative and quantitative; improve our understanding of demographic trends and processes which affect society and the population; and collaborate and communicate with user groups and policy-making individuals and organisations. The initiative is predominantly targeted at early or mid-career researchers wishing to enhance their skills, experience, knowledge and expertise in secondary data analysis. Consequently, the principal objectives of the UPTAP initiative are to:

Standards W3C standards define an Open Web Platform for application development that has the unprecedented potential to enable developers to build rich interactive experiences, powered by vast data stores, that are available on any device. Although the boundaries of the platform continue to evolve, industry leaders speak nearly in unison about how HTML5 will be the cornerstone for this platform. But the full strength of the platform relies on many more technologies that W3C and its partners are creating, including CSS, SVG, WOFF, the Semantic Web stack, XML, and a variety of APIs. W3C develops these technical specifications and guidelines through a process designed to maximize consensus about the content of a technical report, to ensure high technical and editorial quality, and to earn endorsement by W3C and the broader community. If you are learning about Web technology, you may wish to start with the introduction below, and follow links for greater detail.

The Ultimate Lifestyle Planning Guide and Map Occasionally I get in a silly mood and make things like this. I’ve used the phrase getting ahead, getting along, getting away before as a shorthand description of the basic challenge of living life (an overload of a 2-pronged phrase from personality psychologist Robert Hogan: getting along and getting ahead) and I like to use it to frame any writing in this general department. I’ll do my annual round-up next week and then take the week after off, so consider this my holiday gift to you (festive colors, don’t you think?). If you have trouble unwrapping this (hehe!) some hints after the image. You need some basic Venn diagram and yin-yang diagram literacy to read this.

Shaping Wikipedia into a Computable Knowledge Base Download as PDF Wikipedia is arguably the most important information source yet invented for natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence, in addition to its role as humanity’s largest encyclopedia. Wikipedia is the principal information source for such prominent services as IBM’s Watson [1], Freebase [2], the Google Knowledge Graph [3], Apple’s Siri [4], YAGO [5], and DBpedia [6], the core reference structure for linked open data [7]. Tools - Semantic Web Standards Overview This Wiki contains a collection of tool references that can help in developing Semantic Web applications. These include complete development environments, editors, libraries or modules for various programming languages, specialized browsers, etc.
