Ever thought about how to select a LOD dataset? Information like ‘this LOD dataset offers location-based data’ or ‘here you get statistical data about Europe’ – here are some thoughts about LOD datasets metadata: Using Linking Open Data datasets.
Lee Feigenbaum has put together a nice piece on modeling stats in RDF. In his conclusion he writes:
The riese approach seems the best combination of flexibility and usability. It should allow us to recreate the data-table structures with a reasonable degree of fidelity in another environment (e.g. on the Web), as well as to construct a basic semantic repository by attaching definitions to the various statistical entities, facets, and properties. All that said, the proofs in the pudding, and until I’m quite open to other suggestions.
