Quandl: A Wikipedia for Time Series Data (2013)
" as sort of "search engine" for numerical data. The idea with Quandl is that you can find data fast. And more importantly, once you find it, it is ready to use. This is because Quandl's bot returns data in a totally standard format. Which means we can then translate to any format a user wants."

DBpedia logo
"DBpedia (from "DB" for "database") is a project aiming to extract structured content from the information created as part of the Wikipedia project. "

(4) What is the difference between Wikidata and DBpedia? - Quora
  • "Direction of information flow - DBpedia extracts information from Wikipedia,
    Wikidata provides it to Wikipedia.
  • Structure - DBpedia does it's best to apply structure to textual information from Wikipedia, while Wikidata information is structured natively to start
  • Maturity - DBpedia is older, Wikidata is just getting started
  • Notability - DBpedia inherits Wikipedia's white, western, male sense of "notablity" while Wikidata has no notability rules (yet — and Wikipedias can choose not to include Wikidata information that they don't think qualifies as "notable")"
Linked data - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"In computing, linked data (often capitalized as Linked Data) is a method of publishing structured data so that it can be interlinked and become more useful throughsemantic queries. It builds upon standard Web technologies such as HTTP, RDF and URIs, but rather than using them to serve web pages for human readers, it extends them to share information in a way that can be read automatically by computers. This enables data from different sources to be connected and queried.[1]
Tim Berners-Lee, director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), coined the term in a 2006 design note about the Semantic Web project.[2]"
