As the volume of information on the Web increases considerably, users need better tools to help the, discover and make sense of the available information, as well as to seek answers to specific questions they may have. In this paper, the authors introduce Explorator, a tool for exploring the semantic Web data by direct manipulation. Explorator implements a model of operations that is supported by a visual interface that enables the user, with minimal knowledge of RDF (Resource Description Framework) model, to explore an RDF database without a-priori knowledge of data domain.
