Dear all!

The providers of

British Museum
El Viajero

already participated in the 2012 LOD Provider Survey as a reaction of our
first call for participation. This is a great contribution - thank you very
much! But a majority of the LOD Cloud data sets is missing, so we want to
circle around another invitation to participate in our survey. If you could
do so by the end of this week, your response will contribute to the round
table road mapping discussion at the OEDW workshop co-located with EKAW


In 2010 we performed the initial edition of the LOD Provider Survey, an
empirical survey aiming at understanding the ontology reuse and ontology
development process performed by LOD providers.

Covering round about 25% of the data sets publicly known in 2010 the survey
can be considered successful. We also got valuable feedback from the
community. A preliminary report on the survey was published at [1].

During the last two years lots of things happened. The LOD cloud was
dynamically growing and attracts people from different communities today. We
believe it is time for an updated overview and want to invite all LOD
providers to participate in the 2012 instance of the LOD Provider Survey at


The compilation of the results will found the base for a round table road
mapping discussion at our workshop on Ontology Engineering in a Data-driven
World (OEDW - http://granvia.dia.fi.upm.es/oedw2012/) co-located with EKAW

As usual any kind of feedback regarding the survey in general or the
questionnaire is very welcome.


Best regards,
Markus (also on behalf of the OEDW co-chairs)
