Data Sharing on Steroids


Linked Data provides live atomic level access that can traverse unlimited datasources across the web.


Linked Data Explained

With linked data, the web becomes your database.

Linked data is a method for publishing structured data using vocabularies such as, Friend of a Friend or SKOS that can be connected together and interpreted by machines. Using linked data, statements are encoded in triples that can be spread across different websites.


Linked Data makes implicit relationships explicit.  Inferences can be made across linkages.  It uses open standards on which the web is based to turn data on the web into a machine queryable data store.  Linked Data can provide a exchange mechanism for sharing internal data.


"The Semantic Web is a Web of Data — of dates and titles and part numbers and chemical properties and any other data one might conceive of. The collection of Semantic Web technologies (RDF, OWL, SKOS, SPARQL, etc.) provides an environment where application can query that data, draw inferences using vocabularies, etc." - W3C
