Ontological Multidimensional Data Models and Contextual Data Quality
Leopoldo Bertossi, Mostafa Milani
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/3148239

Data quality assessment and data cleaning are context-dependent activities. Motivated by this observation, we propose the Ontological Multidimensional Data Model (OMD model), which can be used to model and represent contexts as logic-based...

Scalable Methods for Measuring the Connectivity and Quality of Large Numbers of Linked Datasets
Michalis Mountantonakis, Yannis Tzitzikas
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/3165713

Although the ultimate objective of Linked Data is linking and integration, it is not currently evident how connected the current Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud is. In this article, we focus on methods, supported by special indexes and...
