The number of applications designed around Linked Open Data (LOD) has expanded rapidly in recent years. However, these applications typically do not make use of the vast amounts of LOD datasets, but only provide access to predefined, domain-specific subsets. Exceptions that do allow for more flexible exploration of LOD are not targeted at end users, which excludes users who have limited ... [Show full abstract] experience with Semantic Web technologies from realizing the potential of the so-called LOD cloud. This paper introduces a Mashup Platform that models, manages , reuses, and interconnects LOD web applications, thereby encouraging initiative and creativity of potential users. Figuratively, our approach allows developers to implement building blocks whereas the platform provides the cement so that end users can build houses by themselves.
