The Wikidata Query Service allows users to run complex queries and ask intricate questions to Wikidata, a free, open and vast knowledge base. My project involves improvements to the Explorer Dialog and the Graph Explorer of the Wikidata Query Service.

The first goal of the project is making the Explorer Dialog more interactive by making the Dialog draggable, resizable and responsive as well as adding support for multiple Explorer Dialogs on the screen.

The second goal of the project is making the Graph Explorer more intuitive and explanatory. The main task in this section is to show and expand incoming links in the Graph Explorer.

These improvements will benefit WQDS users by enhancing the readability and the usability of the service.
