The Linked Data Life-Cycle

The Linked Data Life-Cycle tries to visualize the relevant steps performed to generate, manage, publish Linked Data.

Introduction

The Linked Data Life-Cycle, LOD2 Cycle, or LOD Cylce tries to visualize the relevant steps performed to generate, manage, publish Linked Data.

Relevant Literature about the Linked Data Life-Cycle is:

TikZ Version

I was looking for a TikZ version of the life-cycle cake but coudn’t find one, so here it is:


\documentclass[tikz]{standalone}
