datasets properly, thus posing barriers on its usefulness and reuse.
In this paper, we describe an attempt to exhaustively identify the
whole linked open data cloud by harvesting metadata from multiple
sources, providing insights about duplicated data and the general
quality of the available metadata. This was only possible by using a
probabilistic data structure called Bloom Filter. Finally, we published
a dump file containing metadata which can further be used to enrich
