    In an interconnected world, Linked Data is more important than ever before. However, it is still quite difficult to access this new wealth of semantic data directly without having in-depth knowledge about SPARQL and related semantic technologies. Also, most people are currently used to con- suming data as 2-dimensional tables. Linked Data is by defi- nition always a graph, and not that many people are used to handle data in graph structures. Therefore we present the Linked Data Query Wizard, a web-based tool for displaying, accessing, filtering, exploring, and navigating Linked Data stored in SPARQL endpoints. The main innovation of the interface is that it turns the graph structure of Linked Data into a tabular interface and provides easy-to-use interaction possibilities by using metaphors and techniques from current search engines and spreadsheet applications that regular web users are already familiar with.
