As Linked Open Data promises to enrich a user’s web experience in various ways like having computers read information that is shared by users or by being able to query resources on the web in an advanced way, research puts more and more effort into the development of linking tools. In this paper we summarize several linking tools regarding their most important aspects by applying a template to each of them. This includes a general description for each of the tools as well as technical aspects. To provide a comprehensive overview we also compare the tools using a table with important aspects. Furthermore we add additional information regarding linking techniques for completeness.
