  • Heiko PaulheimEmail author


Integrated systems can consist of numerous applications containing massive amounts of data. Although integration is a useful step towards a better usability for the end user, it is possible to improve an integrated system’s usability further. In this chapter, we discuss how the existing framework can be extended by the Semantic Data Explorer, which helps the user navigating the information contained in the different applications. This chapter is structured as follows: Sect. 10.1 introduces the Semantic Data Explorer and explains how the user can interact with it. Section 10.2 explains the implementation of the Semantic Data Explorer, and Sect. 10.3 presents a user study indicating the benefits of the Semantic Data Explorer for end users.
