Re: Visualizing Linked Data - did we miss anything?

Dear Alvaro,

thank you for the pointers. I was aware of visualRDF and naturally Graves but Visualbox (unfortunately the links to the demos are not working, for example, and LOSPerKr new.

What I also find really interesting is the LODSPeaKr is focused on the music domain, we are currently doing most of our examples in that domain as well because the data is quite well aligned and there are a lot of dimensions that can be visualised in different ways. This will make it also very easy to include as part of the content that we are preparing. 

Have you discovered any other domains, which are quite complete and easy to visualise (without fixing the data too much)?

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
