Debugging inconsistent OWL ontologies is a tedious and time-consuming task where a combination of ontology engineers and domain experts is often required to understand whether the changes to be performed are actually dealing with formalisation errors or changing the intended meaning of the original knowledge model. Debugging services from existing ontology(More)
Debugging inconsistent OWL ontologies is a time-consuming task. Debugging services included in existing ontology engineering tools are still far from providing adequate support to ontology developers and domain experts for this task, due to their lack of efficiency or precision when explaining the main causes for inconsistencies. We present a catalogue of(More)
This article describes our work realised since the beginning of the Towntology project, which aim was the development of urban ontologies. First of all our work deals with the comprehension of what is an ontology and their uses. Thanks to this prior studies, we develop a prototype and 3 urban ontologies: road system, urban mobility, urban renewal. After(More)
In this article we describe our work on the design of urban ontologies in visual form, realized within the framework of the TOWNTOLOGY project. Our contribution relates the development of a design tool of pre-consensual ontology, to help the experts of the field (in our case urban planners) to describe their knowledge. The visual tools are an asset for the(More)
Ontology antipatterns are structures that reflect ontology modelling problems, they lead to inconsistencies, bad reasoning performance or bad formalisation of domain knowledge. Antipatterns normally appear in ontologies developed by those who are not experts in ontol-ogy engineering. Based on our experience in ontology design, we have created a catalogue of(More)
