So you have some RDF data. What is it like? What
vocabularies are used? Which classes or predicates
are used and in what proportion? Do literals tend
to have languages or datatypes? If so which ones?

These types of questions are explored to an extent
by the analysis done for the LOD cloud, but what 
tools exist for answering these questions? Is it
invariably roll your own or is there a program 
that you can point at a SPARQL endpoint or RDF
file and get a nice summary describing the nature
of the data?

Cheers,
