Exploring RDF Usage and Interlinking in the Linked Open Data Cloud Using ExpLOD
Publishing interlinked RDF datasets as links between data items identified using dereference able URIs on the web brings forward a number of issues. A key challenge is to understand the data, the schema, and the interlinks that are actually used both within and across linked datasets. Understanding actual RDF usage is critical in the increasingly common situations where terms from different vocabularies are mixed. In this paper, the authors present a tool, ExpLOD that supports exploring summaries of RDF usage and interlinking among datasets from the Linked Open Data cloud.
