We have created 16 RDF datasets covering 187 datasets published at (171 EPA datasets are subset of three big datasets). The original datasets were published by EPA,US Census Bureau, USGS and Office of Management and Budget in CSV compatible format, and they contribute 13,532,250 table entries. The translated RDF datasets contribute a total of 2,927,398,352 triples involving 2,526 properties. We publish the RDF data in two alternative ways: (i) a collection of linked partition files encoded in RDF/XML for users to browse the dataset and dereference the URIs using semantic web browsers, and (ii) one big N-TRIPLE file (data.nt) concatenating the partition files for machines, especially triple stores, to download and import. The largest dataset is Dataset_91, which contributed 2.11 billion triples.

To access the RDF datasets, users may go to Data.gov_Catalog with the following options:

There are two more datasets upcoming, so please stay tuned and come back at
