Options for RDFSViz
RDF Schema namespace
This namespace is used to parse the RDFS file. If a wrong namespace
is selected the RDFSViz tool will not render any node.
The following display options are available:
- no: Properties with class-valued range are not displayed
- asNodeContent: Properties are added to the description of
the corresponding node. Name and range of the property are displayed.
- asEdges: The properties are represented as edges.
This is the default.
- asNodeContentAndEdges: A property is displayed both as
node content and edge.
Hide literal-valued properties
When this option is selected, no literal-valued property appears in
the generated graph. Otherwise, these properties appear as
additional slots in the corresponding class nodes.
Selecting this option causes RDFSViz to print out namespace information
for each class and property name. To keep readability, an abbreviation for
every namespace is generated and used in the graph.
This option is disabled by default.
Show schema nodes
When selected, RDF Schema nodes are also displayed in the graph.
Here you can select the colors of nodes (font and background),
the subclass hierarchy, and edges depicting non-literal properties.
By enabling the aspect ratio, one can force a certain height-width ratio.
This can be usefull when the automatically layouted graph tends
to be too wide.
Additional information about the grapher parameter settings are displayed in
the result HTML page.
Here you can choose between graphviz-1.7c (available as executable package
for various platforms) and a patched graphviz-1.7.9. Version 1.7c has
some font scaling problems. Some node labels are sometimes misaligned.
Version 1.7.9 introduces new edge routing
routines but, as it is not an official release, tends to crash, especially
when namespace display is enabled.
