Topological properties of the Linked Open Data Webgraph

Omitola, Temitope, Millard, Ian, Glaser, Hugh, Gibbins, Nicholas and Shadbolt, Nigel (2010) Topological properties of the Linked Open Data Webgraph First International Workshop on Consuming Linked Data (COLD2010)

Record type: Article


In this paper, we present an experimental study of the con- nectivity properties of the Linked Open Web of Data. Using these con- nectivity properties, we attempt to discern structure out of the basic elements, i.e. the datasets, and the linkages between them. We report our experimental findings of its topological properties, such as its degree centrality, geodesics, prestige, and its density. Understanding the Open Data Webgraph structure is important for a number of applications such as effective linked data consumption, federated querying, querying opti- misation, and reachability analysis.
