The Linked Media Framework is an easy-to-setup server application that bundles together some key open source projects to offer some advanced services for linked media management.


LMF is build on top of three Apache projects:

  • Apache Marmotta provides the Linked Data Platform capabilities
  • Apache Stanbol is the extraction and enhancement framework used
  • Apache Solr provides indexation capabilities

The glue that LMF implements allows to get the best of these three projects for providing advance linked media capabilities, such as semantic search or semantic enrichment.


  • LMF Semantic Search offers a highly configurable Semantic Search service based on Apache SOLR. Several semantic search indexes can be configured using LDPath.
  • LMF Enhancer uses Stanbol to enhance the content od the triples stored.
  • LMF Text Classification provides basic statistical text classification services; multiple classifiers can be created, trained with sample data and used to classify texts into categories
  • LMF SKOS Editor allows to directly display and update SKOS thesauruses imported in the Linked Media Framework using the Open Source SKOSjs editor.
