Hi Maria,

Yes, we chose Protege to visualize ontologies not large data sets. We 
are currently experimenting with D3,js javascript libraries for 
visualizing data sets. ( see http://d3js.org/ )

By the way, we did not create the site I mentionend, rather we simply 
discovered the list in our scan of the web for tools for visualizing 
linked data.

Cheers-

Mike

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).
