This screencast describes how to publish legacy data as Linked Data using a variety of tools. First, a CSV file is imported to Google Refine. Then, using DERI's RDF extension, several of the data fields are reconciled against DBpedia. Next, the data is aligned with classes and properties from RDF Schema. Finally, the data is published as RDF/XML using the Linked Media Framework. At this point, it can be viewed in human-readable format (via a browser) or machine-readable (via a REST client).

Keywords: RDF Schema, Google Refine, Schema alignment, REST API
