UpLink - A Linked Data Editor for RDB-to-RDF Data


Hert, Matthias; Marsella, Sergio; Reif, Gerald; Gall, Harald (2011). UpLink - A Linked Data Editor for RDB-to-RDF Data. In: Proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Semantic Systems (I-Semantics), Graz, Austria, 7 September 2011 - 9 September 2011.

Abstract

Linked Data builds a machine-processable Web of Data based on a large and growing number of RDF datasets and typed links among them. For the human user, Web-based interfaces were developed to enable browsing and editing Linked Data that is stored as native RDF. However, the majority of data on the current Web is stored in Relational Databases (RDB). This is a challenge for Linked Data browsers and especially for Linked Data editors. In this paper, we present UpLink which is to the best of our knowledge the first Linked Data editor for RDB-to-RDF data, i.e., RDF data that is mapped on demand from a RDB. We further present usage scenarios to demonstrate that UpLink supports the basic CRUD operations for editing Linked Data.
