This webinar provides an introduction to SPARQL, a query language for RDF.
Users will gain hands on experience crafting queries, starting simply, but
evolving in complexity. These queries will focus on coinage data in the
SPARQL endpoint hosted by http://nomisma.org: numismatic concepts defined
in a SKOS-based thesaurus and physical specimens from three major museum
collections (American Numismatic Society <http://www.numismatics.org/>, British
Museum <http://www.britishmuseum.org/>, and Münzkabinett of the Staatliche
Museen zu Berlin
linked to these concepts. Results generated from these queries in the form
of CSV may be imported directly into Google Fusion Tables for immediate
visualization in the form of charts and maps.

*Redux:* This webinar was first presented as a training session in the
LODLAM Training Day at SemTech2014.
