Hi,

two months ago I presented the findings of my diploma thesis in this 
mailing list. The aim of my thesis is to draw up a set of criteria to 
assess the quality of Linked Data sources. My findings included 11 
criteria, each comprising a set of so-called indicators. These 
indicators constitute a measurable aspect of a criterion and, thus, 
allow for the assessment of the quality of a data source w.r.t the criteria.

Since then, I developed a valuation system to assess the quality of a 
data source based on these criteria and indicators. One part of the 
valuation system is a generic formalism to represent quality assessment 
formally. The second part is a proposal of actual valuation methods for 
the indicators.
My proposal can be found here:

I'm posting this proposal in order to evaluate my findings. Therefore, 
any feedback will be very welcome!

Thanks again to everyone participating,
Annika
