SPARQL Query Builders: Overview and Comparison

  title={SPARQL Query Builders: Overview and Comparison},
  author={Pavel Grafkin and M. Mironov and M. Fellmann and Birger Lantow and K. Sandkuhl and A. Smirnov},
  booktitle={BIR Workshops},
The SPARQL query language has been proposed as a simple language for querying graph-structured data on the Semantic Web. However, users have to write queries that must conform to the SPARQL syntax. ... 
A User Interface for Exploring and Querying Knowledge Graphs (Extended Abstract)
This work provides a summary of its work on a language and visual interface – called RDF EXPLORER – that helps non-expert users to navigate and query knowledge graphs. Expand
RDF Explorer: A Visual SPARQL Query Builder
A language is proposed that relaxes expectations of how to formulate queries in a language such as SPARQL, and its operators are based on an interactive graph-based exploration that allows non-expert users to simultaneously navigate and query knowledge graphs. Expand
A Universal Application Programming Interface to Access and Reuse Linked Open Data
The main innovation of this approach is offering programmatic access to Linked Open Data through the automatic building of SPARQL queries without requiring any prior knowledge of the data and the Semantic Web environment. Expand
Question Answering System Over Semantic Web
A template-based approach is proposed which classifies the question types and finds appropriate SPARQL query templates for each type including comparatives and superlatives, and has the potential to deal with a large number of question types, including comparative andsuperlatives. Expand
Knowledge Graph Exploration: A Usability Evaluation of Query Builders for Laypeople
This paper evaluates and compares the most prominent techniques, QueryVOWL, SPARKLIS and the Wikidata Query Service (WQS), through a usability evaluation, using a mixed-method evaluation based on usability metrics and heuristics, containing both quantitative and qualitative data. Expand
Enabling ad-hoc reuse of private data repositories through schema extraction
A configurable and automated schema extraction and publishing approach, which enables ad-hoc SPARQL query formulation against RDF triple stores without requiring direct access to the private data, can enable reuse of data from private repositories and in settings where agreeing upon a shared schema and encoding a priori is infeasible. Expand
A method of knowledgebase curation using RDF Knowledge Graph and SPARQL for a knowledge-based clinical decision support system
Clinical decisions are considered crucial and lifesaving. At times, healthcare workers are overworked and there could be lapses in judgements or decisions that could lead to tragic consequences. TheExpand
An APIfication Approach to Facilitate the Access and Reuse of Open Data
There is a gap between open data and users in which the APIfication approach can help by creating APIs for available datasets, which consists of a model-based generation of suitable APIs with natural language documentation to access open data. Expand
Schema Extraction for Privacy Preserving Processing of Sensitive Data
Sharing privacy sensitive data across organizational boundaries is commonly not a viable option due to the legal and ethical restrictions. Regulations such as the EU General Data Protection RulesExpand


QueryVOWL: A Visual Query Notation for Linked Data
This paper presents QueryVOWL, a visual query language that is based upon the ontology visualization VOWL and defines mappings to SPARQL, and aims for alanguage that is intuitive and easy to use, while remaining flexible and preserving most of the expressiveness of SParQL. Expand
A Visual Approach to Semantic Query Design Using a Web-Based Graphical Query Designer
NITELIGHTS is introduced, a Web-based graphical tool for semantic query construction that is based on the W3C SPARQL specification and the potential contribution of the NITELIGHT tool to rule creation/editing and semantic integration capabilities is discussed. Expand
XSPARQL-Viz: A Mashup-Based Visual Query Editor for XSPARQL
XSPARQL-Viz provides an easy to use drag and drop visual query editor, which supports novice users in designing complex mappings between XML and RDF and based on these mappings auto generates and executes XSParQL queries. Expand
Domain-Driven Visual Query Formulation over RDF Data Sets
This work proposes a visual query approach over RDF data sets based on an abstract domain-driven (conceptual) query language and builds the QUaTRO2 tool which implements it and provides a high usability graphical user interface to assist domain experts in constructing complex queries and browsing their results. Expand
Ontology-Based Visual Query Formulation: An Industry Experience
An ontology-based visual query system, OptiqueVQS, is presented and user experiments in two industrial settings are reported, showing the versatility of this approach to querying semantic data sources. Expand
SPARQL Assist language-neutral query composer
By enhancing support for internationalization, and moreover by simplifying the manual construction of SPARQL queries through the use of controlled-natural-language interfaces, this work believes it has made some early steps towards simplifying access to Semantic Web resources. Expand
Ontology Based Graphical Query Language Supporting Recursion
An improved query system using a Visual Query Language to enable efficient querying on ontologies even by novice users who do not have an in-depth knowledge of internal query structures is introduced. Expand
Smeagol: A "Specific-to-General" Semantic Web Query Interface Paradigm for Novices
The Smeagol visual query interface is introduced, which guides the user from a specific example to a general result set, and an analysis of this specific-to-general approach is provided, contrasting it with existing systems. Expand
NL-Graphs: A Hybrid Approach toward Interactively Querying Semantic Data
NL-Graphs is presented, which aims to exploit the strengths of both approaches, while ameliorating their weaknesses, to combine two query approaches (graph-based and natural language) as a hybrid query approach. Expand
Approaches to visualising Linked Data: A survey
Key requirements which the visualisation of Linked Data must fulfil in order to lower the technical barrier and make the Web of Data accessible for all are described and proposals for advancing current Linked data visualisation efforts are presented. Expand
