View the Project on GitHub clarkparsia/csv2rdf


csv2rdf is a simple, but powerful open source tool for generating RDF output from CSV/TSV files. The conversion is done by a template file that shows how the RDF output will look for one row. See examples/cars for details.


ant clean dist will create a local build in the dist sub-directory.


You can run the tool with the command java -jar dist/lib/csv2rdf.jar followed by arguments.

You can see the help screen with the command java -jar dist/lib/csv2rdf.jar help convert.

You can run the conversion for the example using java -jar dist/lib/csv2rdf.jar examples/cars/template.ttl examples/cars/cars.csv cars.ttl.
