DESCRIPTION Linked Data is a standards-driven model for representing structured data on the Web that gives developers, publishers, and information architects a consistent, predictable way to publish, merge and consume data.
It's been adopted by many well-known institutions, including Google, Facebook, IBM, Oracle, and government agencies, as well projects such as Drupal and WordPress.
It works through examples of increasing complexity while explaining foundational concepts such as HTTP URIs, the Resource Description Framework (RDF), and the SPARQL query language.
Readers will learn to use various Linked Data document formats to create powerful Web applications and mashups, and to effectively use emerging Web standards to access, find, and query structured data on the Web.
