Plans for visual R2RML/SMS editor?

Apologies if this is the wrong forum.

Are there any plans for a visual mapping tool for R2RML/SMS to allow ontology-driven creation of graph data from RDBMS and text files? I see a great potential for this capability, and even fewer people know R2RML/SMS than SPARQL. Previous attempts like D2RQ, SQuaRE, and FluidOps Information Workbench appear to have gone dark or at least dormant?



Hi Tim,

This is the right forum, and thanks once again for the feedback. We agree that a visual tool of this sort has a lot of potential. I can’t give any definite timeline, but I can say that we do have plans for adding a tool along these lines to Studio.

This is a bit of an old post but I wanted to follow up with a link to an old project called Juma. It uses the Jigsaw library from MIT to visually compose R2RML mappings. I'm not sure if I think it's great or it's just meh but it's certainly interesting.

Meanwhile, I've been processing my SMS files using R and visualizing them with visNetwork in RShiny. I've found the approach to be very useful in both the early design phase and when creating queries. I'll take a look at Jigsaw - its always good to have more in your kit. Cheers!
