The Web of Data is the web composed of pages which have semantic markup in RDF, RDFa, Microformats or Microdata (e.g. schema.org). Semantic markup can be about any topic, ranging from popular ones like people, events, reviews, products, services etc., to specific scientific annotations, media, bioscience, software and more.
Sindice is a platform to build applications on top of this data. Sindice collects Web Data in many ways, following existing web standards, and offers Search and Querying across this data, updated live every few minutes. Specialized APIs , and tools are also available.
We’re all waiting to see what’s next for the Web of Data – that is, the Semantic Web – after a year that had numerous highlights including: the official publication of HTML5, which boasts the ability to describe the structure of a web document with standard semantics; a flurry of activity for schema.org, including a new actions vocabulary, new types such as roles, and several community- and partner-led improvements in areas from bibliographies to sports to events; and, the continuing progression of Knowledge Graphs from the likes of Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Yahoo.
