RDF Schema Explorer (Querying/Validating/Extending RDF models)

Hello all!

Here is something that may complement some other interesting services
(like Redland):

RDF Schema Explorer  at   http://wonkituck.wi-inf.uni-essen.de/rdfs.html


What can be done with it? 

(1) You can feed some RDF stuff into the Explorer (text entry/file
upload). This will be parsed with Jan Wielemaker's SWI-Prolog parser and
the resulting triples will be asserted to the fact base.

(2) You can CHECK/VALIDATE your model against the rule set provided in
version 1.2 of the paper "A logical interpretation of RDF" (see [1]

(3) You can QUERY the model repeatedly by using the provided rule/fact
set and by providing your OWN additional RULES/QUERIES.

(4) You can DEFINE/EXTEND THE SEMANTICS for your own predicates directly
from within your RDF document.

Please, give it a try. Some more explanations are given on the Web site.

Thank you!

Best regards,
        Wolfram + Reinhold
