Hi all,

we are happy to announce the launch of http://www.visualdataweb.org - a 
website that provides an overview of our past and current attempts to 
make the Data Web visually more experienceable. In particular, it lists 
some of the visual tools we developed along with screencasts and live 
demos accessing DBpedia.

Besides the already known tools RelFinder and gFacet, the website 
presents SemLens for the first time, a new tool that supports the visual 
exploration of RDF data via scatter plots and semantic lenses. All three 
tools are implemented in the open source framework Adobe Flex and can be 
tried out online without local installation (only Flash player is 
needed). Have fun playing around with these visual tools and discover 
relationships, correlations, and dependencies that you have not been 
aware of before.

Best
Philipp & Steffen

P.S.: Please note the tiny "DBpedia-meter" on the tool pages showing 
up-to-the-second status information on DBpedia endpoint availability. A 
red status means high endpoint traffic - in this case, you should better 
check back later, as many other people also access the DBpedia endpoint 
at the same time and the live demos work only very slow or not at all.

P.P.S.: If you like this project and have related ideas, research 
results and/or developments, consider to submit your work to the 
workshop "Interaction and Visualization in the Data Web" (IVDW 2011) 
that we are organizing in conjunction with the conferences 
INFORMATIK2011, KI2011, and MATES 2011 in beautiful Berlin this year 
(note that parts of these events are in German). Please find more 
information about the IVDW 2011 workshop at:
