This links to the PDF version of Ethan Gruber's webinar, which provides an introduction to SPARQL, a query language for RDF. Users will gain hands-on experience crafting queries, starting simply, but evolving in complexity. These queries will focus on coinage data at the SPARQL endpoint hosted by with numismatic concepts defined in a SKOS-based thesaurus and physical specimens from three major museum collections linked to these concepts. Results generated from these queries in the form of CSV may be imported directly into Google Fusion Tables for immediate visualization in the form of charts and maps.
