Hi LODsters,

We are pleased to provide a LOD 'constellation' diagram [1] of 
class-level mappings within open linked datasets.  It is meant to 
accompany the LOD cloud diagram [2] that our community has been 
using for more than a year to great effect to educate the public 
about linked data.

Fred Giasson did all of the initial analysis behind the creation 
of this LOD 'constellation' diagram.  The input files behind this 
diagram are also available for download [1].

I have also provided a bit more background information and 
description of the importance of class-level mappings in a 
related blog post [3].

As that post tries to stress, we now have all of the essential 
infrastructure pieces for effectively promoting the linked data 
vision.

Pretty cool! and thanks to all of you for publishing the datasets 
and bringing linked data to this current inflection point.

Regards, Mike
