SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language (SPARQL) is a query language defined by the W3C standard for querying RDF data. For further information on SPARQL, see background-sparql.

The SPARQLer tool

The SPHN SPARQL Queries Generator (SPARQLer) is a Python tool that accepts as input an SPHN RDF schema (Turtle format) and generates a series of SPARQL queries in a standard RDF/OWL format based on the concepts present in the schema.

The automatically generated queries could be executed against a SPARQL endpoint by data managers and hospitals to retrieve the content of the RDF data in a tabular format.
