Abstract

This paper introduces The Linked Data AppStore (LD-AppStore) – a Software-as-a-Service platform prototype for data integration on the Web. Building upon emerging Linked Data technologies, the LD-AppStore targets data scientists/engineers (interested in simplifying tasks such as data cleaning, transformation, entity extraction, data visualization, crawling, etc.) as well as data integration tool developers (interested in exploiting the use of their tools by data engineers). This paper provides an overview of the architecture of the LD-AppStore, the APIs of the basic data operations supported by the platform, presents a set of data integration workflows, and discusses the current status of the implementation.
