LinkedPipes Visualization @ ESWC 2016 Demo Track

LinkedPipes Visualization was presented at ESWC 2016 Demo Track!


One click visualizations

We have streamlined the visualization discovery process for the case when you have your RDF file with only one meaningful possible visualization. This means that you get this visualization on one click. Try it out with a SKOS concept scheme or an RDF data cube! If you don’t have your own data, try e.g. the EU programmes and switch to Tree visualization.


Merging of data sources

When you fill two or more URLs in the “URL containing RDF” field, you create a merged data source. This is especially helpful for merging RDF data cube observations and the DSD, as these two need to be in one data source.

whatshotIRI dereferencing in Data Cube visualizer

When you want to visualize a data cube and only provide the DSD and observations, we will dereference the IRIs of your dimension values to see if we can get labels for them. This means that you don’t have to provide the used code lists as long as their items are dereferenceable. Try it out! Use these two URLs in the “URL containing RDF” field: Observations, DSD. If you examine the files, you will see that the labels for days, age categories and sexes are not there. Nevertheless, you will see them in the visualization, because we get them by dereferencing their IRIs.

You can click on “Feeling lucky” button and see what visualization of your data we will choose. For example, if you want to visualize a data cube and you also provide SKOS concept schemes used on dimensions, when you simply click on “Visualize”, you will have to choose from the Data cube visualizer and the Concept scheme visualizer. In this particular case, you probably want the data cube visualizer and that is what you get when you are feeling lucky.
