Re: SHACL Shapes Generation - A quick survey

Hi everyone,

Thank you, Thomas, Sven, Joshua, and Holger, for taking the time to reply to my question and for your suggestions. I looked into them carefully. 

Indeed these are interesting use cases and study directions. It seems though that the main focus is to obtain shapes from ontologies, what about deriving shapes from instance data?
In a sense, on the one hand, we can use the TBox statements; on the other hand, we can try to derive from the ABox instead.
The first group of tools contains methods like Astrea [1], and the second group contains for instance SHACLGEN[2] and tools like Shape Designer [3].

Here we aim to know the usage of such tools and their use cases.

Also, I have prepared a quick survey I would like to ask you and the rest of the community to fill out (it will take max ~2 minutes, only 1 mandatory question): <>

Thanks a lot!
