The world is moving from a state where there is paucity of data to one of surfeit. These data, and datasets, are normally in different data stores and of different formats. Connecting these datasets together will increase their value and help discover interesting relationships amongst them. This paper describes the authors' experience of using linked data to inter-operate these different datasets, the challenges they faced, and the solutions hey devised. The paper concludes with apposite design principles for using linked data to inter-operate disparate datasets.
