Generating Linked Data from Open Data

Increasing Costs of Data Capitalization Publishing data using standardized ("open") document formats has become a global endeavor. 

In this blog post I demonstrate a cost-effective and productive approach to generating Linked Data from Open Data using Virtuoso's in-built data access, integration, and management technology.

Generating Linked Data from Open Data

Given two #CSV  documents available on the Web:

[1] -- MIT's Observatory of Economic Complexity Index Data

[2] -- LinkedIn Influencer Google Spreadsheet .

Using the magic of #URIBurner & #SPARQL , I simply construct the following SPARQL Queries which also generate and publish 5-Star Linked Data:

[1] -- MIT OECI CSV Document

[2] -- LinkedIn Influencers Google Spreadsheet 

Query Results Links:

[1] -- MIT OECI (Relational Tables with RDF Property Graphs seque via HTTP URI Super Keys in query solution [results] )

[2] - ditto re. LinkedIn Influencer Google Spreadsheet .

Nanotation based Notes:

End of RDF Document Format Wars

As I continue to populate my pinterest pin collection [1], it occurred to me that the distracting "RDF Document Format" wars are finally over! Like the emergence of the Semantic Web this also came to pass without fanfare :)

This is very good, and reset my thinking about C.  Because it's  always described as the "Speed of Light", we tend to think of it that way.  But it's really the outcome of the contants in Maxwell's equations etc. and is the speed of causality - the maximum speed that anything can travel.
