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


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.


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.
