DBpediaDQ: User-driven quality evaluation of DBpedia

  • screenshot

With the myriad of data sets and use cases available in the LOD cloud, data quality is one of the important concepts to be considered. The DBpedia Data Quality Curation project is aimed at evaluating the quality of the resources present in DBpedia.


As we all know, DBpedia is an important dataset in Linked Data as it is not only connected to and from numerous other datasets, but it also is relied upon for useful information. However, quality problems are inherent in DBpedia be it in terms of incorrectly extracted values or datatype problems since it contains information extracted from crowd-sourced content.

However, not all the data quality problems are automatically detectable. Thus, we aim at crowd-sourcing the quality assessment of the dataset. In order to perform this assessment, we developed a tool whereby a user can evaluate a random resource by analyzing each triple individually and store the results. Here is the link to the tool: http://nl.dbpedia.org:8080/TripleCheckMate/.
