Semgel is targetted at knowledge workers who need to gather, organize and analyze data found on websites. Spreadsheets have been the primary tool for downloading and analyzing data from websites. However this approach is typically suitable only for working with a single set of flat data(typically csv’s). If the user needs to work with more richly structured data (multiple tables related to each other or xml files with multiple levels of nesting), the user will need to organize this data in a relational database and construct complex queries to get the answers he is looking for – something that often requires a software professional. Semgel seeks to simplify this process and make this capability accessible to the average spreadsheet user. Using semantic web technologies, it enables the average spreadsheet user to assemble and analyse data through a intuitive, yet powerful interface.8.
