FAIR and interactive data graphics from a scientific knowledge graph
Very interesting paper. H/T: @storyneedle (22 min)
Graph databases capture richly linked domain knowledge by integrating heterogeneous data and metadata into a unified representation. Here, we present the use of bespoke, interactive data graphics (bar charts, scatter plots, etc.) for visual exploration of a knowledge graph. By modeling a chart as a set of metadata that describes semantic context (SPARQL query) separately from visual context (Vega-Lite specification), we leverage the high-level, declarative nature of the SPARQL and Vega-Lite grammars to concisely specify web-based, interactive data graphics synchronized to a knowledge graph.
State of CSS 2022
Browser developers have been working together to reduce incompatibilities that drive web developers, as well as marketers, crazy. Adam Argyle reports on progress made and what is coming. His article is a text version of his presentation at Google IO 2022, which you can also watch. A good resource. (29 min – but handy TOC links to each feature).
