Abstract

The data on the web is heterogeneous and distributed, which makes its integration a sine qua non-condition for its effective exploitation within the context of the semantic web or the so-called web of data. A promising solution for web data integration is the linked data initiative, which is based on four principles that aim to standardize the publication of structured data on the web. The objective of this chapter is to provide an overview of the essential aspects of this fairly recent and exciting field, including the model of linked data: resource description framework (RDF), its query language: simple protocol, and the RDF query language (SPARQL), the available means of publication and consumption of linked data, and the existing applications and the issues not yet addressed in research.
