After the success of the original "Linked Open Data- The Essentials" guide from 2012, we are proud and happy to now be able to present this new edition, titled "Linked Open Data - The Climate Knowledge Brokering Edition". This book is a quick start guide for decision makers and climate knowledge brokers seeking to get up to speed with the concept of Linked Open Data (LOD), and are looking to make their organization part of the movement. It provides a brief overview of LOD and its relevance for successful knowledge brokering, as well as practical answers to many pertinent questions, including: • What do the terms Open Data, Open Government Data and Linked Open Data actually mean, and what are the di erences between them? • What are climate knowledge brokers, and how is Open Data relevant to them? • How can Open Data help my organization to communicate more e ectively? • What do I need to take into account when developing a LOD strategy for my organization, and what needs to be done technically in order to open up and publish data sets? • How can I add value to my own data sets by consuming LOD from other sources, and how can that support my role as a knowledge intermediary? • What can be learned from ve case studies of best practice in LOD? • REEEP's Climate Tagger www.climatetagger.net • NREL's Open Energy Information Portal http://en.openei.org • Enipedia http://enipedia.tudelft.nl/wiki/Main_Page • GBPN's Tool for Building Energy Performance Scenarios • Development Initiatives' Joined-up Data Standards
