Dear Bernadette,

The XBRL dataset I mentioned last week in our Cube Session you find at Edgar Linked Data Wrapper [1].

* Describes XBRL filings from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
* Edgar LD Wrapper uses the RDF Data Cube vocabulary.
* Companies are linked to Freebase.
* Edgar LD Wrapper data is used in our XBRL Challenge Submission Demo FIOS [2].

Best,

Benedikt
