The Linked Open Data Cloud Diagram is a cool diagram showing about 570 datasets:

Linked Open Data Cloud Diagram

What are the steps to get my dataset into the next version of this diagram?

And more importantly, what are the technical/legal requirements for my dataset?

Also, what can I do to maximize the chances of my dataset getting accepted into this diagram? (For instance, I guess a dataset which is very small, extremely specialized, and in Japanese, would have lower chances than a large famous well-linked dataset)

essentially you need to:

  1. validate your dataset with ckan lod validator
  2. publish dataset
  3. add it to ckan "so that it appears in the next version of the lod cloud diagram"
