A comparative analysis of methodologies , tools and languages used for building Ontologies

  title={A comparative analysis of methodologies , tools and languages used for building Ontologies},
  author={L. Casely-Hayford}
An Ontology is a formal specification of a certain domain. At present they are widely used by different communities for different purposes. During the process of building an ontology several questions arise related to the methodologies, tools and languages that should be used in the process of development. Currently ontologies are implemented in a large variety of languages and development tools. This report aims to review and compare the main methodologies, tools and languages available for… Expand

Methodologies, tools and languages for building ontologies: Where is their meeting point?
In this paper we review and compare the main methodologies, tools and languages for building ontologies that have been reported in the literature, as well as the main relationships among them.Expand
A Distributed Environment for Development and Deployment of Ontologies of Knowledge-Based Systems
The aim of the presented research is to improve the process of knowledge-based systems construction by providing a common integrated environment for the ontologies development and deployment for knowledge based systems. Expand
A Roadmap to Ontology Specification Languages
This paper establishes a common framework to compare the expressiveness and reasoning capabilities of "traditional" ontology languages (Ontolingua, OKBC, OCML, FLogic, LOOM) and "web-based" ontological languages, and concludes with the results of applying this framework to the selected languages. Expand
The Ontolingua Server: a tool for collaborative ontology construction
This work has developed a set of tools and services to support the process of achieving consensus on commonly shared ontologies by geographically distributed groups, and describes applications using these tools to achieve consensus on ontologies and to integrate information. Expand
Methodology for the Design and Evaluation of Ontologies
The goal of the TOVE (TOronto Virtual Enterprise) Enterprise Modelling project is to create the next generation Enterprise Model, a Common Sense Enterprise Model that has the ability to deduce answers to queries that require relatively shallow knowledge of the domain. Expand
An Evaluation of Ontology Exchange Languages for Bioinformatics
This paper reports on an effort among the authors to evaluate alternative ontology-exchange languages, and to recommend one or more languages for use within the larger bioinformatics community. Expand
Towards a Methodology for Building Ontologies
Some requirements for a comprehensive methodology for building on tologies are outlined and some important work that has been done in the area which could contribute to this goal are reviewed. Expand
Toward Distributed Use of Large-Scale Ontologies t
The relation between ontologies and the process of developing a system is discussed, arguing that to be useful, an ontology needs to be created as a "living document", whose development is tightly integrated with the system’s. Expand
Evaluation of ontology development tools for bioinformatics
Four tools for developing and maintaining ontologies are compared, Protégé-2000, Chimaera, DAG-Edit and OilEd; each system has its own strengths and weaknesses. Expand
