"Using DBpedia's data to trace the influential artists", a visualization work is presented at the Beauty of Data Exhibition, Feb. 2016 -- at the MuseLab, SLIS, KSU
This work visualizes the artists that were influenced by two important artists, using the data obtained from DBpedia,  the Linked Data datasets of Wikipedia. The tasks include: a) Obtain data through DBpedia’s endpoint using a SPARQL query generated using a template that I created.  b) Clean up the data gathered from DBpedia that responding the query, using the CSV (Comma-separated values) file. c) Visualize the data using an open source tool, Gephi.  The purpose is to help ordinary users to obtain artists network data in a minute without learning the complicated SPARQL query language and to present it beautifully.  http://wiki.dbpedia.org/  http://dbpedia.org/sparql
