Visiual Data Web

Faceted Browsers –  Combines graph based visualization and faceted filtering techniques for browsing RDF data with the goal to make the Data Web visually more experiancable. The four developed tools are readily configured to access RDF data of the DBpedia and Linking Open Data (LOD) projects and only require a Flash Player to be executed . A demo for DBpedia is available at

Some of the the key design principles for the developments include

  • Minimal Technical Requirements
  • Intuitive User Interfaces
  • Standardized Data Access

SemLens – uses scatter plots for the analysis of DBpedia data and semantic lenses for further exploration (Flash-based)
