All,

Here is a link [1][2] demonstrating what's now possible following a port 
of the Microsoft Silverlight variant of PivotViewer to HTML5.

Background:

A while back, Microsoft introduced a powerful data visualization tool 
called Silverlight that ended up being under utilized and eventually 
killed off due to its delivery as a plugin. A group of us decided to get 
the data visualization tool ported to HTML5 [3] as part of an open 
source project.

Deliverables:

We now have an HTML5 rendition of the original PivotViewer combined with 
some innovations at the platform independence (works on the iPad and 
iPhone [4]), layout (includes tabular presentation), and data access 
(supports SPARQL) levels.

With regards to SPARQL, an endpoint simply needs to include support for 
CXML as one of its output formats.

Links:

Life & Nature Data presented via the HTML5 PivotViewer
2. http://bit.ly/1a17nfx -- SPARQL query definition URL that places you 
inside the PivotViewer hosted query editor
3. http://bit.ly/QWYP1T -- Github project page
4. http://bit.ly/RiAzU1 -- screencast showing its use on the iPhone and 
iPad.
