DBpedia is a crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia and make this information available on the Web. DBpedia allows you to ask sophisticated queries against Wikipedia, and to link the different data sets on the Web to Wikipedia data. We hope that this work will make it easier for the huge amount of information in Wikipedia to be used in some new interesting ways. Furthermore, it might inspire new mechanisms for navigating, linking, and improving the encyclopedia itself. Upcoming Events News Call for Ideas and Mentors for GSoC 2014 DBpedia + Spotlight joint proposal (please contribute within the next days)We started to draft a document for submission at Google Summer of Code 2014: are still in need of ideas and mentors.

SweoIG/TaskForces/CommunityProjects/LinkingOpenData - W3C WikiNews 2014-12-03: The 8th edition of the Linked Data on the Web workshop will take place at WWW2015 in Florence, Italy. The paper submission deadline for the workshop is 15 March, 2015. 2014-09-10: An updated version of the LOD Cloud diagram has been published. The new version contains 570 linked datasets which are connected by 2909 linksets. Project Description The Open Data Movement aims at making data freely available to everyone. The goal of the W3C SWEO Linking Open Data community project is to extend the Web with a data commons by publishing various open data sets as RDF on the Web and by setting RDF links between data items from different data sources. RDF links enable you to navigate from a data item within one data source to related data items within other sources using a Semantic Web browser. The figures below show the data sets that have been published and interlinked by the project so far. Clickable version of this diagram. Project Pages Meetings & Gatherings See Also Demos 1. 2.
ToolsThis page gives an overview of software tools related to the Semantic Web or to semantic technologies in general. Due to the large amount of tools being created in the community, this site is always somewhat outdated. Contributions and updates are welcomed. See also: Tool Chains Adding your own Adding your own tool is as easy as creating a page. Do not forget to use a suitable category to classify the tool, otherwise it will not appear below. If your tool is an OWL 2 implementation or a RIF implementation not yet listed here, please consider to add it. Current tools on semanticweb.org.edu The following tools are currently recorded in this wiki. RDF2Go (Version 4.8.3, 4 June 2013) Bigdata (Version 1.2.3, 31 May 2013) Semantic Measures Library (Version 0.0.5, 4 April 2013) HermiT (Version 1.3.7, 25 March 2013) Fluent Editor (Version 2.2.2, 20 March 2013) The following is a list of all tools currently known (use the icons in the table header to sort by any particular column)
SemanticWebTools - W3C WikiREDIRECT New SemanticWiki Tools Page As of 12:50, 14 January 2010, this page is no longer maintained and should not be changed. The content has been transferred to (Changes made here after the above date may not be reflected on the new page!) Please consult and possibly modify that page. Table of Contents: This page contains the information on RDF and OWL tools that used to be listed on the home pages of the RDF and OWL Working Groups at W3C. This Wiki page is only for programming and development tools. There are other pages on tool collection, largely overlapping with this, but possibly with a different granularity or emphasis. There are also separate pages maintained on this Wiki for: SPARQL implementations, set up by the SPARQL Working Group (although most of the information is present on this page, too) SPARQL "endpoints", examples of using SPARQL in exposing various data.

Tools - Visual Data WebMore information on the DBpedia endpoint availability. Several tools have already been developed in the project that showcase the visual power of the Data Web. The following four tools are all implemented in the open source framework Adobe Flex. They are readily configured to access RDF data of the DBpedia and/or Linking Open Data (LOD) projects and only require a Flash Player to be executed (which is usually already installed in Web browsers). Just try out the live demos or watch the screencasts first. If you want to know more about the tools, check out the separate tool pages or get in contact with the developers. Since most DBpedia data has been automatically extracted from Wikipedia and other sources, it cannot be expected to be 100% complete or correct. All tools on this website are research prototypes that might contain errors.
semanticweb.com - The Voice of Semantic Web BusinessSemantic UniversitySemantic University is the largest and most accessible source of educational material relating to semantics and Semantic Web technologies. It includes: Lessons suitable to those brand new to the space. Comparisons, both high-level and in-depth, with related technologies, such as SQL, NoSQL and Big Data. Interactive, hands on tutorials. There's much more, too—learn more about Semantic University. Semantic University content is split into two sections, each with several tracks. Every lesson comes with its own Forum for further discussion.
