Semantic Web Import Plugin for Gephi visualization

Participants : Erwan Demairy [correspondant] , Fabien Gandon, Olivier Corby.

The SemanticWebImport(http://wiki.gephi.org/index.php/SemanticWebImport ) plugin is intended to allow the import of semantic data into Gephi open graph vizualisation platform. Gephi is an interactive visualization and exploration platform for all kinds of networks and complex systems, dynamic and hierarchical graphs. The imported data are obtained by processing a SPARQL request on the semantic data. The data can be accessed following three manners:

  1. by accessing local RDF & RDFS files and using the embedded Corese engine to apply the SPARQL request;

  2. by accessing a remote REST SPARQL endpoint. In that case, the SPARQL request is applied remotely and the graph is built locally by analyzing the result sent by the endpoint;

  3. by accessing a remote SOAP SPARQL endpoint. As for the REST endpoint, the resulting graph is built from the result returned by the endpoint.

The software is released under version 1.0.
