Configuring Semantic Web Interfaces by Data Mapping

Presented at: Workshop on Visual Interfaces to the Social and the Semantic Web (VISSW2009)

by Michiel Hildebrand, Jacco van Ossenbruggen


We demonstrate how to develop Web-based user interfaces for Semantic Web applications using commonly available, off-the-shelf Web widget libraries. By formally defining the underlying data model that is assumed by these widgets, Semantic Web application developers can use familiar RDF constructs to map their own data to the model implemented by the Widgets. As an example, we briefly describe the interface model underlying our own framework, and provide concrete examples showing how it has been used to create Semantic Web applications in two different domains. We conclude by discussing the advantages and limitations of our approach.
