UnifiedViews User Guide

UnifiedViews (UV) is an Extract, Transform, Load-tool (ETL) for RDF data. The Data Processing Units (DPUs) provide functions that enable you to cover the extraction and data transformation tasks you need to cover in order to prepare for and use data with PoolParty.

The following tasks can be made easy by using UnifiedViews:

  • you can define ETL tasks, the UV data processing pipelines, for processing RDF data.
  • UV makes data processing highly customizable by allowing to use custom plugins, the Data Processing Units (DPUs), in the so-called pipelines.
  • it provides monitoring, debugging, and scheduling of pipelines.

This documentation describes the web interface of the ETL tool from the user's perspective. It uses concepts described in the Glossary.

Ask your administrator for the URL of the web administration interface of UnifiedViews.
