    • Triple counts tell us nothing
    • Triple counts are not a quality indicator

    • Triple counts dont indicate utility

    • RDF Report Card Example
    • Summarising Content of a Dataset● Find all classes in all datasets in Kasabi● Tag each class against a pre-defined set of categories ● Customized version of top-level schema.org classes● Generate a report card for each dataset listing types of entity
    • Report Card Categories
    • Ordnance Surveyhttp://beta.kasabi.com/dataset/ordnance-survey-linked-data
    • BBC Musichttp://beta.kasabi.com/dataset/bbc-music

    • NHS Performance Datahttp://beta.kasabi.com/dataset/nhs-performance-data
    • Summary● Triple counts tell us nothing● Vital to present the quality & utility of our data ● Data publishing platforms should support this● "Progressive disclosure" ● Right detail at the right time● Dataset analysis can generate useful summaries ● e.g. an RDF report card
