Presenting RDF graphs to the end user as hypertext enables interactive exploration and inquiry of "semantic" data. In this paper we present a tool that allows users to "see" their RDF data, without having to decipher syntactic representations that are typically not human-friendly. The tool is part of a broader architecture designed for viewing many different types of data in Semantic Web formalisms, for experimenting with the caching of dynamically changing data, and for exploring the possible ad hoc integration of data from multiple sources. Additionally, this tool enables browsing of semantic data on a mobile device, by adapting the hypertext generation to better suit small screens.
