Publishing information on the Semantic Web using common formats enables data to be linked together, integrated and reused. In order to fully leverage the potential for interlinking data by reusing existing schemas, an intuitive way of viewing current usage of RDF vocabularies is required. We present a system which allows a user to view the most frequently occurring namespaces and classes in a large Semantic Web dataset, and the main linkage patterns that exist between them. Users can select a namespace of interest in order to examine usage of a particular ontology, and see how it is being combined with other vocabularies.
