DMX is a free and open source semantic data platform. You can author, map, explore and share networked information with meaningful relationships.

Mind Mapping

Start building and developing ideas in an ad-hoc manner.

Graphical Type Building

Develop domain specific data models in an interactive, visual and iterative process.

Form Generator

Input forms are derived directly from the data model. DMX allows entering data while improving the data model.

Semantic Storage

Topics and Association can carry rich semantic meanings. DMX is Semantic-Web ready and open for semantic data exchange.

Distributed Teams

Work simultaneously with team members. View and edit data in real-time. Ensure access control based on the DMX workspace concept.

Various Views

Topicmaps show Topics and their Associations on an infinitely zoomable canvas. Geomaps show Topic locations. Tableviews list Topics in a spreadsheet-like manner.

Who uses DMX

Many of us are engaged in knowledge-intensive work and handle networked information from various sources. We are engineers, journalists, analysts, software developers, scientists, consultants. Explore what you can do with DMX.

At Aalto University a content team classified and linked historical data to feed a timeline based website. It tells the story of events and innovations as well as people who had great impact on Aalto an the Finnish society.

At Berlin Hyp an interdisciplinary team of subject matter experts, information architects and business analysts developed a data model of commercial real estate financing. They used this data model to build a new inhouse application by means of domain driven design.

At Lettrétage members of the CROWD network used DMX to plot a “litera-tour” by bus through Europe in real time. Based on their event data model entry forms were generated and ready to use. A public website with geomap and event data was connected via REST API.

At tendu a web based application allows climbing gyms to manage their route database and climbers to rate routes by difficulty. By means of the DMX workspaces access control was easy to implement. The frontend – based on material design and Vue.jx – was connected via REST API.

The research group Responsibility and the Internet of Things at the Weizenbaum Institute uses DMX with its rich semantic vocabulary to map the results of their Knowledge Hyper Cube workshops and for evaluating the options for future semantic data exchange.

At the University of the West of England DMX is used for Social Network Analyses within the scientific validation process of the South West Creative Technology Network. The possibilities of examining the data from a relational view is one of the main aspects for using DMX as a research tool within the project.

DMX is used to document workshops and conferences in both ad hoc-mode by taking digital notes, as well as in a structured, data model based way. This way the relations between speakers, talks, rooms, time slots and resources become visible.

At taz journalists used DMX to transfer public data into public knowledge. Research data was imported and semantically enhanced by adding associations to then visualize it on the project’s website.

At Kiezatlas DMX is used to manage open data on more than 8000 socio-cultural places in Berlin. By means of Facets the data can be visualized from various perspectives.
