Swoogle

February 1, 2004 - May 1, 2010

Swoogle (http://swoogle.umbc.edu/) is an specialized web search engine that discovers, analyzes and indexes knowledge encoded in semantic web documents published on the Web. Swoogle reasons about these documents and their constituent parts (e.g., terms, individuals, triples) and records meaningful metadata about them. Swoogle provides webscale semantic web data access service, which helps human users and software systems to find relevant documents, terms and triples, via its search and navigation services. Swoogle also provides a customizable algorithm inspired by Google's PageRank algorithm but adapted to the semantics and use patterns found in semantic web documents. Swoogle currently has indexed nearly 1.3M Semantic Web documents which contain almost 240M triples. In addition to providing general Semantic Web search services, Swoogle has been used by several projects to maintain and manage specialized collections of RDF data.
