There is a need for being able to effectively demonstrate the benefits of publishing Linked Data. There are already many datasets and they are no longer limited to research based data sources. Governments and even companies start publishing Linked Data as well. However, a tool, which would be able to immediately demonstrate the Linked Data benefits to those, who still need convincing, was missing. In this paper, we demonstrate LinkedPipes Visualization, a tool based on our previous work, the Linked Data Visualization Model. Using this tool, we show four simple use cases that immediately demonstrate the Linked Data benefits. We demonstrate the value of providing dereferenceable IRIs and using vocabularies standardized as W3C Recommendations on use cases based on SKOS and the RDF Data Cube Vocabulary, providing data visualizations on one click. LinkedPipes Visualization can be extended to support other vocabularies through additional visualization components.
