Design and Implementation of LOD Explorer: A LOD Exploration and Visualization Model

Journal of Applied Science and Technology Trends


The quantity of data published on the Web according to principles of Linked Data (LD) is increasing intensely. However, this data is still largely limited to be used up by domain professionals and users who understand LD technologies. Therefore, it is essential to develop tools to enhance intuitive perceptions of LD for lay users. The features of LD point to various challenges for an easy-to-use data presentation. In this research, the technical details behind the LOD Explorer, which is a tool for exploring the Web of Data, is presented, the efficiency and scalability of the system has been tested using several different platforms, and the results of experiments indicated an outstanding performance.
