OpenLink Structured Data Sniffer (OSDS) Browser Extension revealing structured data on HealthDirect Australia site


I came across a linkedin post by James Humffray from HealthDirect Australia about their usage of to optimise exposure of health information

With a simple click I can verify and reveal the structured meta data by using OpenLink Software’s free browser extension OpenLink Structured Data Sniffer also know as OSDS.

Step 1 : Download and Install OpenLink Structure Data Sniffer browser extension

Step 2: Visit a Web Page URL e.g. Healthcare Direct webpage

Step 3: Click on the OSDS Icon in your browser bar to reveal structured data

Additionally OSDS also makes a call to our URIBurner Service to analyze the web page/document. (The service used for this is configurable; you can set up a Virtuoso instance configured similarly to URIBurner in your own infrastructure.)

Equipped with Faceted Browsing functionality for even deeper exploration .

Here is a video demonstration of what I’ve described in this post.


Given a productivity tool for non-programmers e.g., the OpenLink Structured Data Sniffer, the power of a Knowledge Graph comprising Linked Data is well and truly available to everyone using existing browsers!
