Abstract :
Knowledge Graphs facilitate the pooling and sharing of information from different domains. They rely on small units of information named triples that can be combined to form higher-level statements. Producing interactive visual interfaces to explore collections in Knowledge Graphs is a complex problem, mostly unresolved. In this thesis, I introduce the concept of path outlines to encode aggregate information relative to a chain of triples. I demonstrate 3 applications of the concept with the design and implementation of 3 open source tools. S-Paths lets users browse meaningful overviews of collections; Path Outlines supports data producers in browsing the statements that can be produced from their data; and The Missing Path supports data producers in analysing incompleteness in their data. I show that the concept not only supports interactive visual interfaces for Knowledge Graphs but also helps better their quality.
