Abstract

The Semantic Web is an extension of the Web where information is represented in a machine-processable way. Users can access the information on the Semantic Web using a Web browser such as Explorer or Safari. However, since the information is typically represented in RDF (Resource Description Framework), it is not always easy to understand what the information means. While existing Semantic Web browsers can help users understand the information on the Semantic Web, users need to have some knowledge on RDF and XML which is a base representation format for RDF. In this paper, we propose a simple Semantic Web browser for novice users. Using our system, users can easily access the information on the Semantic Web without technical knowledge on RDF. They can navigate among the set of RDF files freely and the system shows the structure of the corresponding information intuitively using circles and arrows.
