Mining Software Repositories with iSPAROL and a Software Evolution Ontology

Christoph Kiefer, Abraham Bernstein, Jonas Tappolet
2007 Fourth International Workshop on Mining Software Repositories (MSR'07:ICSE Workshops 2007)

SPARQL Query Formulation and Execution using FedViz

Syeda Sana e Zainab, Muhammad Saleem, Qaiser Mehmood, Durre Zehra, Stefan Decker, Ali Hasnain
2015 International Semantic Web Conference  
Although the Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies help in dealing with data integration problem, there remains a barrier adopting these for non-technical research audiences.  ...  FedViz facilitates both federated and non-federated SPARQL queries formulation through a visual interface and uses FedX for query execution and the results retrieval.  ...  Due to lack of Semantic Web expertise, writing the desired SPARQL queries to retrieve such data is a challenging task for most of the biologist or clinical researchers [6, 7] .  ...

Graphical Query Builder in Opportunistic Sensor Networks to discover Sensor Information

A.F.M. Sultanul Kabir, Mohammad Saiful Islam Mamun
2011 International Journal of Computer Applications  
Even users may need to input more complicated queries with higher levels of aggregations, and requires more complex interactions with the system.  ...  Later on we have translated the visual query languages into SPARQL query, a machine understandable format which helps the machine to communicate with the underlying technology.  ...  One of the advantages of iSPARQL is that it can built very complex semantic graphical notation.  ...
