The Web of Data has many equivalent URIs. This service helps you to find co-references between different data sets. The main store includes referents from DBpedia, VIAF, the British Library, and other authoritative sources. There are also links to many smaller sameAs stores that are being populated and used by projects and people. The latter are entirely independent from the main sameAs store, although some of the data may also be reflected in the main sameAs store..

- Knows the "five stars" of Open Data: put data on the Web, preferably in a structured and preferably non-proprietary format, using URIs to name things, and link to other data.
- Recognizes that owl:sameAs, while popular as a mapping property, has strong formal semantics that can entail unintended inferences.
- Uses available resources for named entity recognition, extraction, and reconciliation.
