The success of the linked open data Initiative has increased the amount of information available on the Web. However, the Web content published under this initiative cannot be consumed by users who are unfamiliar with semantic Web technologies (RDF, SPARQL, Ontologies, etc.), because they need to understand the structure, provenance and the way in which data are queried, and this can be complex for non-tech-users. In this paper, the process development of a Web application is described, which uses components borrowed from information architecture and search paradigms applied to the task of consuming linked data by non-tech-users.
