Re: SPARQL endpoint URIsTim, Richard and others,

Yes, there is such a class (only one is found by now).

The Falcons search engine (here, the Concept Search function) can help us find it:


You can get it by visiting the followings:




It shows us that the SPARQLEndpoint class is developed and owned by "dig.csail.mit.edu".

  Semantic Sitemaps are a minimalist extension of Google's Sitemap 
  protocol [1], which is XML-based, and not RDF. So at the moment we 
  don't define RDFS classes.

  Once our basic spec is finalized, we will look into making a matching 
  RDF vocabulary and GRDDL transform. This would be nice because of 
  RDF's natural extensibility, and there would be natural synergies with 
  POWDER. This vocabulary would of course include a class for SPARQL
