LDIF translates heterogeneous Linked Data from the Web into a clean, local target representation while keeping track of data provenance.

  • 1. LDIFLinked Data Integration Framework
  • 2. | LINKED DATA CHALLENGES Data sources that overlap in content may: use a wide range of different RDF vocabularies use different identiers for the same real-world entity provide conicting values for the same properties Implications: Queries are usually hand-crafted against individual sources no different than an API Improvised or manual merging of entities Integrating public datasets with internal databases poses the same problems
  • 3. | LDIF LDIF homogenizes Linked Data from multiple sources into a clean, local target representation while keeping track of data provenance 1 Collect data: Managed download and update 2 Translate data into a single target vocabulary 3 Resolve identier aliases into local target URIs 4 Cleanse data resolving the conicting values 5 Output Open source (Apache License, Version 2.0) Collaboration between Freie Universitt Berlin and mes|semantics

  • 10. | LDIF VERSIONS In-memory keeps all intermediate results in memory fast, but scalability limited by local RAM RDF Store (TDB) stores intermediate results in a Jena TDB RDF store can process more data than In-memory but doesnt scale Cluster (Hadoop) scales by parallelizing work across multiple machines using Hadoop can process a virtually unlimited amount of data
