Abstract

Linked Data is in many cases generated from (semi-) structured data. This generation is supported by several tools, a number of which use a mapping language to facilitate the Linked Data generation. However, knowledge of this language and other used technologies is required to use the tools, limiting their adoption by non-Semantic Web experts. We demonstrate the rmleditor: a graphical user interface that utilizes graphs to easily visualize the mappings that deliver the rdf representation of the original data. The required amount of knowledge of the underlying mapping language and the used technologies is kept to a minimum. The rmleditor lowers the barriers to create Linked Data by aiming to also facilitate the editing of mappings by non-experts.
