This paper describes the enhanced LIRE (LInked RElations) architecture for creating relations between datasets available on open government portals. The architecture is improved to be applicable on different open government data platforms using minimal configuration at the Data processing layer. We evaluated the applicability of enhanced LIRE, its advantages and disadvantages, which resulted in necessary recommendations for the publication of dataset’s metadata to obtain better associations between datasets. Moreover, we introduced a LINDAT indicator that reflects the percentage of linked data in the total possible number of linked data on open government data portals.
