Hi,

I am interested if anyone has good tips to help estimate how large a  
plain old legacy sql database is going to be in triples for a  
particular ontology. I can probably make them up, but who knows,  
perhaps someone has already written a calculator for this. This would  
be very useful in estimating what projects should would be initial  
candidates for putting online behind a SPARQL interface, given that  
current specialised triple databases can take between 20 million and  
300 million triples. [1]
