One of the most common sights around the coast of the Maltese Islands is the traditional boat called "Il-Luzzu" (pronounced loot-su). "Il-Luzzu" is an eye-catching boat that is brightly painted in shades of brownish-red, yellow and blue. A pair of Osiris eyes are usually painted at the bow. This was done in order to protect the fishermen from any bad luck.
Luzzu is also a Quality Assessment Framework for Linked Open Datasets. It is a generic framework based on the Dataset Quality Ontology (daQ), allowing users to define their own quality metrics. We aim to provide an integrated platform that:
- assesses Linked Data quality using a library of generic and user-provided domain specific quality metrics in a scalable manner;
- provides queryable quality metadata on the assessed datasets;
- assembles detailed quality reports on assessed datasets.
