In this paper we describe our experience with building the riese dataset, an interlinked, RDF-based version of the Eurostat data, containing statistical data about the European Union. The riese dataset (, aims at serving roughly 3 billion RDF triples, along with millions of high-quality interlinks. Our contribution is twofold: Firstly, we suggest using RDFa as the main deployment mechanism, hence serving both humans and machines to effectively and efficiently explore
