HOBBIT’s Linking and Spatial Benchmarks

The number of datasets published in the Web of Data as part of the Linked Data Cloud is constantly increasing. The Linked Data paradigm is based on the unconstrained publication of information by different publishers, and the interlinking of Web resources across knowledge bases.  In most cases, the cross-dataset links are not explicit in the […]
