Why use YourDataStories?

YourDataStories aggregates data from various separate datasets into a common "semantic graph" in RDF. In plain English: YourDataStories connects information from different sources in one place. It enables users to access such data easily and to discover relations between data. In such a way, users can browse, search, visualize, and make sense of the aggregated data, rather than chase the original, discrete datasets which may only be accessible to experts.
