Dear Mike,

why did you settle for Protege?  Are you focusing mainly on visualising ontologies and not so much data (instances)?

The list is indeed quire extensive. Is it sorted in any way? We are trying to distinguish a bit between research-level tools and product-ready tools.

I also find the posts on Large-scale RDF Graph Visualization Tools very useful.

Best,
Maria

This is part of the contributions of the European project EUCLID (http://www.euclid-project.eu), which aims to provide an educational curriculum for Linked Data practitioners. So far we have created training materials on introducing the Linked Data principles and application scenarios [1], and on querying Linked Data [2]. Currently we are working on covering visualization. If you are a developer or a user of methods or tools, which are relevant and we have missed, please let us know (direct reply to the email or euclid-project@sti2.org and on Twitter https://twitter.com/euclid_project).
