This page lists the domains which publish and maintain linked data and short term projects developing the government use of linked data.
Most sectors have one or more SPARQL endpoints, which enable you to perform searches across the data; you can access these interactively on this site.

Though we are working to repackage and provide more detail in this section, we rely on everyone's input to maintain the underlying content. For this current iteration we have removed all dead links, but be rest assured that the underlying URI are being maintained.
If you would like to highlight a project or alert the community to a resource which is not being maintained please provide a comment or let us know via @UKGovLD.
