Tarql is a command-line tool for converting CSV files to RDF using SPARQL 1.1 syntax. In short, a CSV file’s contents are input into a SPARQL query as a table of bindings. This allows manipulation of CSV data using the full power of SPARQL 1.1 syntax, and in particular the generation of RDF using CONSTRUCT queries. Includes design patterns and examples. Discusses how to deal with variations in header rows, delimiters, quotes and character encoding encountered in CSV/TSV files.
