Linked Data, Linked Open Data (LOD)

Linked Open Data (LOD) is one component of the Open Data Movement (which aims at making data freely available to everyone). It has been described as a “recommended best practice for exposing, sharing, and connecting pieces of data, information, and knowledge on the Semantic Web using URIs and RDF” (source).

This page presents some selected LOD resources (information, presentations, etc.). Please feel free to add or correct the entries as needed – many of these links were selected in 2012, and there is likely significant room to expand and update the list.
