http://schema.org/headline Semantic Web
http://schema.org/text The web of Linked Data. The Semantic Web is also known as Web 3.0 and extends the classic Web by allowing links not only between pages but between arbitrary data items. Semantic Web Technologies refers to the set of technologies including the standards RDF, RDFS and OWL that allow to express the meaning of data to electronic agents.

http://schema.org/headline Open Data
http://schema.org/text Data are made available to the public to be freely used, re- used and redistributed. An increasing number of governments around the world have adopted and implemented policies promoting the publication of Open Data. Open Government Data goes beyond freedom of information laws because the data is electronically made available by government agencies and not only handed out on request. In Switzerland, the Federal Council approved the Open Government Data Strategy for Switzerland in April 2014.

http://schema.org/headline RDF
http://schema.org/text The Resource Description Format (RDF) is a data model that shapes data as graphs. Data items can be connected to abstract concepts, as well as, to real world entities. The RDF model is more flexible than the relational database model (RDBMS): it doesn’t require a fixed, tabular structure of the data and it allows relations not only between tables, but between arbitrary data items.

http://schema.org/headline Linked Open Data
http://schema.org/text Linked Open Data is Open Data made available using Linked Data technologies. While Open Data is often just some files (typically PDFs or Excel files) available for download Linked Open Data allows directly querying datasets using the standardized query language SPARQL. Moreover, Linked Open Data also allows to directly link individual data items, this is an essential feature to make claims verifiable and thus, promote facts.

http://schema.org/headline Technology
http://schema.org/text Linked Data refers to a set of standards promoted by the W3C to create a web of data. Linked Data extends the Web by allowing data to be directly exposed and interlinked with other related data. The result is, one no longer needs to search through a website or use proprietary APIs to access data, and even disparate sources can be queried using standardized means.

Linked Data technologies are the foundations of the Semantic Web also known as Web 3.0. The documented-oriented traditional web was thought by its inventor as the first stage, the next web shall make knowledge much more directly accessible to both humans and machines. Data becomes interoperable and actionable. With linked data the web can directly answer complex questions using data from disparate sources.


An example please?
Say you love jazz, are very sensitive to ozone and want to move to Switzerland despite your limited budget. Which town is best for you? All relevant data is available on the web, but only with linked data and its query language SPARQL you can make a single query that is answered using data from the federal office of the environment for the ozone levels, from the statistical office for the housing pricing and from Time Out magazine for the jazz events. And the best of it: thanks to the W3C web standards the different sources do not need to care about connecting to each other or even know each other, they can be used in concert simply because they all publish adhering to standards and best practices.

The following introduces some key concepts and technologies for Linked Data.
