Dear all,

We are happy to announce the release of Tabels [1].

Tabels is a tool aiming to bridge the gap between tabular formats and
linked data. Tabels is able to process spreadsheets, csv files, but
also other tabular formats: statistical oriented ones (PC-Axis),
analysis tool formats, shapefiles (GIS) and so on.

Moreover, Tabels offers the posibility to disambiguate terms extracted
from the input files against online datasets such as DBPedia (see an
example at [2]), publishing and relating information from offline
sources to the Linked Data cloud. Furthermore, the RDF datasets
generated by Tabels can be extended or manipulated by means of
declarative directives (based on the Jena rules engine and the SPARQL
1.1 interface).

Tabels is more than a transformation tool and it is geared with
data-sensitive front-end widgets to facilitate end users the
exploitation and exploration of data: namely, chart views, faceted
views, interactive charts and maps and sparql endpoint.

Please give Tabels a try on our online demo service [1] and tell us
about your experience. Any feedback is more than welcome.

Cheers,

Alfonso Noriega Meneses.
