Knowledge on schema level is vital for the development of Semantic Web, but the number of schema information in Linking Open Data (LOD) is limited. We approach this problem by contributing to the complementary part of LOD, that is, Linking Open Schema (LOS), which helps close the gap between lightweight LOD and expressive ontologies by adding more expressive ontological axioms between concepts. In this paper, we present Zhishi.schema Explorer for exploring Chinese linked open schema - Zhishi.schema. Zhishi.schema Explorer provides Lookup Service and SPARQL Endpoint, which respectively allow querying with concept labels and the SPARQL language.
