SV: Visualizing Linked Data - did we miss anything?

We have built a tool to visualize SPARQL results. It is called DaViz [1]. The emphasis was on providing a wizard that can suggest a proper visualization for the data structure. It also has the ability to do pivoting by letting the user drop on column on another. Demo site: [2]. We also made a prototype SPARQL adapter for JasperReports and will most likely pursue that for our Java-based websites.

Emne: 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.
