The Information Workbench - A Platform for Linked Data Applications
The authors describe the information workbench, a platform for developing linked data applications. The platform features a highly customizable user interface to present the data to the users and realize different interaction mechanisms. UI development is based on SemanticWiki technologies, enriched with a large set of widgets for data access, navigation, exploration, visualization, data authoring, and analytics, as well as data mashups with external data sources. Widgets can be easily embedded into SemanticWiki pages in a fully declarative way using a simple wiki-based syntax.
