Visualizing Linked Data - did we miss anything?

Dear all,

we are trying to compile a survey of topics and tools for visualizing Linked Data. This is part of the contributions of the European project EUCLID (, which aims to provide an educational curriculum for Linked Data practitioners. So far we have created training materials on introducing the Linked Data principles and application scenarios [1], and on querying Linked Data [2]. Currently we are working on covering visualization. If you are a developer or a user of methods or tools, which are relevant and we have missed, please let us know (direct reply to the email or and on Twitter

All training materials produced by EUCLID are freely available [3] (Attribution) and can be reused for trainings and educational activities.
