rdf:SynopsViz – A Framework for Hierarchical Linked Data Visual Exploration and Analysisrdf:SynopsViz – A Framework for Hierarchical Linked Data Visual Exploration and AnalysisNikos Bikakis | Melina Skourla | George Papastefanatos2017-06-27Abstract. The purpose of data visualization is to offer intuitive ways
for information perception and manipulation, especially for non-expert
users. The Web of Data has realized the availability of a huge amount
of datasets. However, the volume and heterogeneity of available information
make it difficult for humans to manually explore and analyse
large datasets. In this paper, we present rdf:SynopsViz, a tool for hierarchical
charting and visual exploration of Linked Open Data (LOD).
Hierarchical LOD exploration is based on the creation of multiple levels
of hierarchically related groups of resources based on the values of one or
more properties. The adopted hierarchical model provides effective information
abstraction and summarization. Also, it allows efficient -on the
fly- statistic computations, using aggregations over the hierarchy levels.

Exploration and Visualization in the Web of Big Linked
Data: A Survey of the State of the Art
Exploration and Visualization in the Web of Big Linked Data: A Survey of the State of the ArtNikos Bikakis2016-01-29Data exploration and visualization systems are of great importance
in the Big Data era. Exploring and visualizing very large datasets
has become a major research challenge, of which scalability is a
vital requirement. In this survey, we describe the major prerequisites
and challenges that should be addressed by the modern exploration
and visualization systems. Considering these challenges,
we present how state-of-the-art approaches from the Database and
Information Visualization communities attempt to handle them. Finally,
we survey the systems developed by Semantic Web community
in the context of the Web of Linked Data, and discuss to which
extent these satisfy the contemporary requirements.
