Linked Data vocabulary designers and application developers need means to easily identify relevant vocabularies, to allow them to reuse existing vocabularies and to develop applications making use of Linked Data. We describe a system that provides information about the popularity of classes and properties based on the Billion Triple Challenge data set. The information about classes and properties can be accessed via a web portal or via Linked API resources. We describe both the data analysis process and the architecture of the web portal.
