About the LOD2 Stack

The LOD2 stack is an integrated distribution of aligned tools which support the life-cycle of Linked Data from extraction, authoring/creation over enrichment, interlinking, fusing to visualization and maintenance. The stack comprises new and substantially extended existing tools from the LOD2 partners and third parties. The LOD2 stack is organized as a Debian package repository making the tool stack easy to install on any Debian-based system (e.g. Ubuntu). The first release of the LOD2 stack contains the following components (available as Debian packages):

  • LOD2 demonstrator, the root package (LOD2)
  • Virtuoso, RDF storage and data management platform (Openlink)
  • OntoWiki, semantic data wiki authoring tool (ULEI)
  • SigmaEE, multi-source exploration tool (DERI)
  • D2R, RDF wrapper for SQL databases (FUB)
  • Silk, interlinking engine (FUB)
  • ORE, ontology repair and enrichment toolkit (ULEI)

Additional details and the instructions on installing the LOD2 Stack from scratch are available in the HOWTO Start document.
