DBpedia Service Categories

The DBpedia Association was created to coordinate more stable community services around DBpedia. We group these services into four categories:


Public Services: are freely available to the wider public and provided by the DBpedia Community as a whole (Association, the Chapters, the association members and other community members).
Member Services: are freely available to association members and provided by the association and its chapters.
Professional Services are additional paid services provided by the association and its chapters. Members will get a discount and some of these services will only be available for members.
Mediated Professional Services: are additional paid services provided by members of the association that are mediated by the association.


Sponsorship Members

Your main incentive to become a sponsor member should be to support the DBpedia Community. As we are grateful to accept you as a sponsorship member, we will mention you in a special place on the website, at the blog, at the meetings and at most other DBpedia activities. Some of the professional services are also included (up to a certain  extent) in the Sponsorship package.
