Rudolf: RDFViz: Exploring tools for RDF Graph Visualisation
To visualise RDF graphs we first parse XML/RDF input into an intermediate representation (the xrdf2tab tool), then use the tab2dot tool to generate a .dot file described the labelled RDF graph. Finally, the
dot tool is used to generate GIF, VRML etc for display.
The FRODO RDFSViz tool provides a visualization service for ontologies represented in RDF Schema.
It uses the Java RDF API implementation (Sergey Melnik), the Xerces XML parser from xml.apache.org, and the Graphviz graph drawing program (AT&T and Lucent Bell Labs).
IsaViz is a visual environment for browsing and authoring RDF models, represented as directed graphs. Resources and literals are the nodes of the graph (ellipses and rectangles respectively), with properties represented as the edges linking these nodes. Since version 2.0, IsaViz supports GSS (Graph Stylesheets), a stylesheet language derived from CSS and SVG for styling models represented as node-link diagrams.
