Karma is a free, open source data integration tool that makes it easier to convert data from a variety of formats into linked data. Appropriately, this information came from Open Source in their article, “Open source data integration with Karma.”

Karma is a web-based tool that runs both the server and browser right on your machine. Users load the ontologies for their application and data samples of each of the data files to be converted into Karma. Being open source is a plus for this tool. What is more collaborative than open source? Having a strategy that focuses on the problems people want to solve or the capabilities they want to support, and allowing experimental approaches can result in dynamic results.
