We have found DESCRIBE queries particularly useful when implementing
mechanism for browsing semantic data in a very generic way, i.e. no
need of prior knowledge.

Rhizomer implements a modified version of the CBD approach for
DESCRIBE results that includes all triples for the selected resources,
plus all for the directly connected anonymous ones plus all the
rdfs:labels for all resources (so CBD + labels).

Then, there is a generic, thought quite complex due to RDF/XML
serialisation subtleties, RDF to XHTML+RDFa XSLT transformation. It
can be tested at:


You can see it working as the browsing mechanism at:
