Short for Simple Protocol and RDF Query Language, SPARQL defines a standard query language and data access protocol for use with the Resource Description Framework (RDF) data model. It works for any data source that can be mapped to RDF. The specification is under development by the RDF Data Access Working Group (DAWG).
