Abstract: The quantity of data published on the Web according to principles of Linked Data is increasing intensely. However, this data is still largely limited to be used up by domain professionals and users who understand Linked Data technologies. Therefore, it is essential to develop tools to enhance intuitive perceptions of Linked Data for lay users. The features of Linked Data point to various challenges for an easy-to-use data presentation. In this paper, Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies are overviewed, challenges to the presentation of Linked Data is stated, and LOD Explorer is presented with the aim of delivering a simple application to discover triplestore resources. Furthermore, to hide the technical challenges behind Linked Data and provide both specialist and non-specialist users, an interactive and effective way to explore RDF resources.
