Anja Jentsch posted the following call on the firstname.lastname@example.org list:
we would like to thank you for putting so much effort in curating the CKAN packages for Linked Data sets since our last call.
We have compiled statistics for the 256 data sets on CKAN that will be included in the next LOD Cloud: http://lod-cloud.net/state
Altogether 446 data sets are currently tagged on CKAN as LOD . But the description of many of these data sets is still incomplete so that we can not find out whether they fulfil the minimal requirements for being included into the LOD cloud diagram (dereferencable URIs and RDF links to or from other data sources).
A list of data sets that could not include yet and an explanation of what is missing can be found here: http://www4.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/lodcloud/ckan/validator/
Starting next week we will generate the next LOD cloud diagram .
Therefore we would like to invite those of you who publish data sets that we could not include yet to please review and update your entries. Please finalize your dataset descriptions until August 15th to ensure that your data set will be part of the LOD Cloud.
In order to aid you in this quest, we have provided a validation page for your CKAN entry with step-by-step guidance for the information needed:
You can use the CKAN entry for DBpedia as an example:
Thank you for helping!
Anja, Chris and Richard
Just a reminder, today is the 10th of August so don’t wait to review your entry.
Whatever your approach, we all benefit from cleaner data.
