Recently, I was playing with several linked data browsers to view data from StYLiD. Amazing to see so many data browsers available today🙂
- OpenLink RDF browser
- Zitgist data viewer
- Disco – Hyperdata browser
- Object viewer
There are also many RDF visualization tools like
…. and so on. Wow! what an impressive list. Please add to it if I missed some.
However, I do not think that these generic RDF or linked data browsers will be useful or usable for general users, who do not know what is RDF or Semantic Web. The user will get lost in the complex data network, with lot of wanted and unwanted data, shown monotonously. I feel that it would be better to hide all this data network from the user and rather provide them useful functionalities or present only some useful data in user friendly way.
