Methods for Intrinsic Evaluation of Links in the Web of Data

[go to overview]

The current Web of Data contains a large amount of interlinked data. However, there is still limited knowledge about the quality of the links connecting entities of different and distributed data sets. In this article, we present a framework for the intrinsic evaluation of RDF links, based on the core principles of Semantic Web data integration: increasing the description of entities, increasing the connectivity of entities and data sets, as well as diversity. Our goal is to provide data publishers with a collection of indicators that, analogously to software metrics, help them understand the way they can improve their interlinking. We conducted an empirical analysis applying these measures to links extracted from the Linked Data Crawl 2014.
