Meta-data for a lot of LOD

Abstract

This paper introduces the LOD Laundromat Meta-Dataset, a continuously updated Meta-Dataset of the LOD Laundromat, tightly connected to the (re)published corresponding datasets which are crawled and cleaned by the LOD Laundromat [5]. The Meta-Dataset contains structural information for over 38 billion triples (and growing). While traditionally dataset meta-data is often not provided, incomplete, or incomparable in the way they were generated, the LOD Laundromat Meta-Dataset provides a wide variety of structural dataset properties using standardized vocabularies. This makes it a particularly useful dataset for data comparison and analytics, as well as for the global study of the Web of Data.
