lodqa is a set of scripts that retrieves dataset from the LOD Cloud snapshot, and assess their quality using Luzzu, a Linked Data Quality assessment framework.

Current Results

We assessed the LOD cloud on a number of quality metrics. At this point we have conducted quality assessment on 130 datasets (click here for a visualisation of the datasets that were accessible) against a number of metrics related to four different categories. The categories in question are:

Ranking from the August 2016 assessment can be viewed in a tabular format here. An overall visualisation of the dataset quality can be found here Furthermore, datasets can be ranked and visualised on Luzzu Web. Quality metadata can be downloaded from Zenodo or crawled using a Linked Data crawler (RECOMMENDED) from https://w3id.org/lodquator/resource/{resource-id}. We are currently assessing these datasets on other metrics. We will keep this space updated, together with the Luzzu Web interface.
