We present a web-based tool that shows a summary of an RDF dataset as a visualization of a graph formed from classes, datatypes and predicates used in the dataset. The visualization should allow to quickly and easily find out what kind of data the dataset contains and its structure. It also shows how vocabularies are used in the dataset.
