Machine-readable datasets which are liberated from proprietary tools and formats are the key enablers for building innovative applications and services. During the past few years, the Linked Data initiative has been constantly growing and today a huge amount of high quality linked datasets are made available to theĀ public following the Linked Data principles. TheĀ Linked Data Lab is aiming to exploit the potentials of Linked Data and its applications. The Linked Data Lab is currently pursuing different projects such a the Linked Widgets framework, the “Vienna Linked Data” project (converting Vienna OGD data to Linked Data and serving via dedicated SPARQL endpoint) and the Open Data Mashup project (a mashup solution for easy consumption of Linked Data).
