Linking Open Data Cloud

See also 2014 augmentation.

This group catalogs data sets that are available on the Web as Linked Data and contain data links pointing at other Linked Data sets.

The descriptions of the data sets in this group are used to generate the Linking Open Data Cloud diagram at regular intervals. The descriptions are also used generate the statistics provided in the State of the LOD Cloud document.

If you publish a linked data set yourself, please add it to CKAN so that it appears in the next version of the LOD cloud diagram. Please describe your data set according to Guidelines for Collecting Metadata on Linked Datasets in CKAN. Please tag newly added data sets with lod. The editors of this group will review your description afterwards and move your dataset into the lodcloud group.

Please also use the CKAN LOD Validator to check that the description of your data set is complete.
