gFacet: A Browser for the Web of Data

Heim, P., Ziegler, J., & Lohmann, S. (2008). In S. Auer, S. Dietzold, S. Lohmann, & J. Ziegler (Eds.), Proceedings of the International Workshop on Interacting with Multimedia Content in the Social Semantic Web (IMC-SSW’08). CEUR-WS.


This paper introduces a new approach to browsing the Web of data by combining graph-based visualization with faceted filtering techniques. The graph-based visualization of facets supports the integration of different domains and an efficient exploration of highly structured and interrelated datasets. It allows to access information from distant user-defined perspectives and thereby enables the exploration beyond the borders of Web pages.
