RE: RDF viewer

Ø  in others the diagrams get too complicated and isn’t of value.

Yep – I find that any diagram with more than around 20 resources shown becomes quite hard to deal with.
In olden times we dealt with this using an A0 plotter.
These days I think some kind of temporary graph selection is needed.
General purpose ‘show it all’ solutions are kinda hopeless.

FYI - I developed a JavaScript RDF graph visualiser that runs in a browser using vis.js (a JavaScript port of Graphviz) with a service worker to perform the rendering in the background. I found it easy to customise the rendering via the DOT language. This works well in some cases, but in others the diagrams get too complicated and isn’t of value.

Dear all,

I have been working on a project that loads and visualizes  various
RDF serializations. Right now it is rough, but public:

With D3:

With Sigma.js:
