The fallout of the Wikidata ontology debate was to use the instance of and subclass of properties. There is a growing chain of term that use these relations. Can they be visualized to see what our ontology looks like now that we are using these terms? And then investigate the conjecture:

Let QID_a and QID_b be two Wikidata items.
Conjecture: if QID_b is subclass of QID_a,
then count_stelinks(QID_b) <= count_sitelinks(QID_a).

Support neededEdit

I have started a python script to scrape the data, and I have some visualization, but its raster. A zoomable interface would be nice if anyone knows how to do that?
