All,

Circa. 2014, we shouldn't be depending on any piece of platform specific 
technology to create a graphical representation of datasets across the 
entire LOD cloud, or specific sub segments of said cloud.

We should be able to generate graphical representations that include the 
following fundamental features:

1. graph visualization
2. live hyperlinks of URIs that denote the cloud data sets.

Why? You end up with yet another beachhead for Linked Data 
follow-your-nose pattern.

Whenever we produce output with non existent or blurry access to HTTP 
URIs that denote entities (documents, agents, or other entity types) 
with inadvertently missed a powerful opportunity to showcase the basic 
Linked Open Data principles value proposition.

Also what applies to this specific scenario also applies to any other 
resource published on the LOD banner.

Shortcut:

Find a visualization tool that can process CSV ouptput.
Feed it SPARQL URL for a solution where the output format is CSV.
Done.
