The Importance of Linked Open Data
The World Wide Web has set up a global information space such of consisting of linked documents. As the Web
becomes more intertwined with our daily lives, there is an increasing desire for immediate access to raw data not being
available on the Web or represent in hypertext documents. Linked Data offers a new publishing paradigm to simplify the
re-usability, inter-linking, complementarity, and sharing data on the Web. Ontologies (data model of Linked Data) are
promoted to be re-used to raise the value of Linked Data. A large amount of data published on the Semantic Web and several
ontology repositories have been created and made available online. The growth of ontologies occurs functioning problems
because there are dependencies which means an ontology may reuse and expand other ontologies, this reuse or editing in an
ontology may impact the ontologies that depend on it. Therefore, it will hamper their efficient re-usability. This paper is
handling this task and presenting Linked Open Data (LOD) as a methodology for improving data description explicitly to
simplify re-use as well as the tools which are available for converting and creating LOD from Open Data and techniques for
linking of data sets. Moreover, it presents the environment and suitable demonstration use-cases for implying the basic
concepts and problems.
