Dear all,

A new system for browsing Linked Data, called SView, is now available [1]. 
It enables end-users to conveniently browse entities described in the Linked 
Data through views and navigators. Besides, it provides a built-in service 
for users to resolve URI coreference collectively.

It has the following features:

1. Home View
This particular view presents a personalized list of properties and their 
values of the visited entity. Users can sort, remove and add properties of 
the visited entity to form a better view of the concerned entity. Each 
user's viewpoint on property sorting is collected and then turned into a 
consensus sorting. The consensus sorting on involved properties is shared 
among all users.

2. Entity Identity Module
The "ID" component becomes available when browsing an entity (visible at the 
left-upper corner). It enables users to interactively identify coreference 
URIs of a visited entity. Each user's viewpoint on entity coreference 
resolution is learned from the user's interaction, and all users' viewpoints 
are aggregated and then shared among all users.

3. Navigator Panel
This panel provides several navigators, such as navigation path, similar 
entity and filtering facility, to help users locate or find semantically 
related entities.

While a number of views and navigators have been built in the system, more 
views and navigators are expected to be plugged in to make the system 
better. It is under consideration that whether or not the SView should 
become an open platform that receives ˇ°plug-insˇ± (e.g. views, navigators) 
from the developer community.

The WebSoft group at Nanjing University (http://ws.nju.edu.cn) will continue 
to improve the SView system. Any comments are welcome.

Have fun with SView :-)
