Welkin and Vicino
Simile (Semantic Interoperability of Metadata and Information in unLike Environments)


Welkin is a graph-based RDF visualizer that I co-developed with Stefano Mazzocchi for the SIMILE project. Welkin is not meant to be a tool to discover a single RDF statement out of a thousands, but it's meant as a "telescope" for your RDF data, a tool that lets you understand its global shape and cluster characteristics rather than the individual item.

Vicino is near-neightbor search tool. The idea is be able to query data by distance search, with pluggable distance functions.
