VIVO stores its information in graphs – named collections of triples. Graphs keep data organized by kind, and provide the opportunity for different access rights and management practices to be applied at the graph level. All graphs are available to the VIVO SPARQL query interface. When using SPARQL to query the VIVO data, one does not need to know the graph the data is contained in. Triples in all graphs are available to the query. When updating data in VIVO using CONSTRUCT or UPDATE, knowledge of the graph may be necessary.
Here we show how to list the graphs in a VIVO, and provide a reference for the purpose of each graph.
To list the graphs being used by your VIVO, you can run the SPARQL query shown below. Caution: If you have a significant amount of data in your VIVO, the query may take quite a while to run. With tens of thousands of entities in your VIVO, the query should complete in a few minutes.
To list the triples in a named graph, use the query below, substituting the name of the graph you wish to list. Caution: listing the triples in larger graphs may take significant time.
