Integrating Public Datasets Using Linked Data: Challenges and Design Principles

Omitola, Temitope, Koumenides, Christos L., Popov, Igor O., Yang, Yang, Salvadores, Manuel, Correndo, Gianluca, Hall, Wendy and Shadbolt, Nigel (2010) Integrating Public Datasets Using Linked Data: Challenges and Design Principles At Future Internet Assembly, Belgium. 16 - 17 Dec 2010.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


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 datastores and of different formats. Connecting these datasets together will increase their value and help discover interesting relationships amongst them. This paper describes our experience of using Linked Data to inter-operate these different datasets, the challenges we faced, and the solutions we devised. The paper concludes with apposite design principles for using linked data to inter-operate disparate datasets.
