Sure.  The idea is that the meta-data is maintained as constantly as
possible on CKAN. Maybe as more and more datasets start publishing voiD
descriptions and Semantic SiteMaps we can in the future also support the
maintenance of the data by some update robots who crawl the metadata and put
it into CKAN.

 

For now, we have set the capping date as we needed a fixed point in time  to
start drawing the next version of the cloud diagram. 

 

Cheers,

 

Chris

thanks for the update

 

 

This time it is likely to contain around 180 datasets altogether having a
size of around 20 billion RDF triples.

 

dream or nightmare?

 

 

For drawing the next version of the LOD cloud, we have started to collect
meta-information about the datasets to be included on CKAN, a registry of
open data and content packages provided by the Open Knowledge Foundation.
The list of datasets about which we have already collected information is be
found here: http://www4.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/lodcloud/ In addition to basic
meta-information about a dataset such as its size and the number of links
pointing at other datasets, we also collect additional meta-information
about the license of the dataset, alternative access options like SPARQL
endpoints or dataset dumps, and whether there exist a voiD description of
the dataset or a Semantic Web Sitemap.

 

glad to see some knowledge organisation effort around LOD -  it would be
advisable if any of you related to this effort could join the okf project
coordination list

where all okfn related project information is being coordinated

So if your dataset is not listed yet and you want to have it included into
the next version of the LOD cloud, please add it to CKAN until next
Wednesday (September 8th, 2010).

may I ask why capping the date, rather than keeping it an open/ongoing
effort? why not continually update the registry

 

thanks
