Revolutionize Wikipedia Search
Wikipedia currently only supports keyword-based search and does not allow more expressive queries like "Give me all cities in New Jersey with more than 10,000 inhabitants" or "Give me all Italian musicians from the 18th century." This lowers the overall utility of Wikipedia.
One major application domain for the DBpedia data set is to enable sophisticated queries against Wikipedia, which could revolutionize the access to this valuable knowledge source.
Here are three prototypical search interfaces using different approaches to improve Wikipedia search:
- DBpedia Faceted Search – allows you to explore Wikipedia via a faceted browsing interface.
- The DBpedia Query Builder provides an easy-to-use interface for formulating queries against DBpedia as a set of matching patterns.
- The OpenLink iSPARQL visual query builder provides a graphical interface for formulating SPARQL queries against DBpedia.
