If you or your team write SPARQL queries and are sometimes wondering if there is a query builder which allows you to overcome two major obstacles why non-programmer people aren’t querying Linked Data, namely 1. hard to understand what data is available, how the classes and properties are named, what the relations are 2. demand to know SPARQL language syntax and whole concept of triple based binding and graph matching then you perhaps would like to check out what Vinge Free has come up with. We have launched a Free Edition of a new kind of Linked Data Browser which we call “Explore & Query”. It is available for download and there are two videos that demonstrate the tool in action. http://www.vingefree.com/querybyexplore/ On a nutshell it is a combination of a Linked Data browser and a Query Builder. It allows to explore and reveal data models; build, visualize and execute SPARQL queries. So essentially while you are navigating in the linked data graph, the tool builds the query for you. On any graph. Regardless how expressive is the ontology or if it is even published. And it is fun! The tool works over any SPARQL endpoint using HTTP binding, which means it runs on top of any triple store.
