On Using Graphical Notation In Ontology Engineering

  title={On Using Graphical Notation In Ontology Engineering},
  author={R. Hodrob},
The enormous need for well engineered ontologies is growing rapidly, as the need for ontologies is increasing in many application areas such as data integration, the semantic web, knowledge engineering, enhanced information retrieval, etc. Due to the central role ontologies are playing, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) developed the Web Ontology Language (OWL) as a language to author ontologies. However, OWL, like many other similar ontology languages, does not provide a practical and… Expand
A Reference Architecture for Ontology Engineering Web Environments
This work proposes and documents a reference architecture for such tools running in web environments and provides the rationale for boosting the collaborative development of a novel tool based on this architecture, named crowd. Expand
ORM Diagram as an Intermediate Model for OWL Ontology Engineering: Protégé ORM Plugin Implementation
A Protégé plugin allowing to create an ORM2-diagram using the live error checking approach was implemented and allows us to form a valid object-oriented diagram model in computer memory using a widely known ontology authoring tool ProtÉgé. Expand


Towards Methodological Principles for Ontology Engineering.
The main goal of this thesis is to present methodological principles for ontology engineering to guide ontology builders towards building ontologies that are both highly reusable and usable, easier to build, and smoother to maintain. Expand
On Using Conceptual Data Modeling for Ontology Engineering
An ontology engineering-framework that enables reusing conceptual modeling approaches in modeling and representing ontologies, and an ontology-engineering tool that implements the ideas presented in the paper. Expand
Mapping ORM into the SHOIN/OWL Description Logic - Towards a Methodological and Expressive Graphical Notation for Ontology Engineering
The mappings are implemented as an extension to the DogmaModeler tool, which uses Racer as a background reasoning engine, and the expressive, methodological, and graphical capabilities of ORM make it a good candidate for use as a graphical notation for ontology languages. Expand
A manufacturing system engineering ontology model on the semantic web for inter-enterprise collaboration
The proposed approach focuses on how to support information autonomy that allows the individual team members to keep their own preferred languages or information models rather than requiring them all to adopt standardized terminology. Expand
OWL 2 Web Ontology Language: structural specification and functional-style syntax
The OWL 2 Web Ontology Language, informally OWL 2, is an ontology language for the Semantic Web with formally defined meaning. OWL 2 ontologies provide classes, properties, individuals, and dataExpand
Combining Ontology Development Methodologies and Semantic Web Platforms for E-government Domain Ontology Development
This research presents a case study combining an ontology building methodology and two state-of-the-art Semantic Web platforms namely Protege and Java Jena ontology API for semantic ontology development in e-government. Expand
OWL 2 Web Ontology Language: Profiles
This document provides a specification of several profiles of OWL 2 which can be more simply and/or efficiently implemented and modified by modifying the productions of the functional-style syntax. Expand
OWL 2 Web Ontology Language New Features and Rationale
This document is a simple introduction to the new features of the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language, including an explanation of the differences between the initial version of OWL and OWL2, and their rationale from a theoretical and implementation perspective. Expand
Visual Modeling of OWL DL Ontologies Using UML
A standard MOF2 compliant metamodel is provided which captures the language primitives offered by OWL DL and a UML profile is invented, which allows to visually model OWL ontologies in a notation that is close to the UML notation. Expand
The ICOM 3.0 intelligent conceptual modelling tool and methodology
The intention behind ICOM is to provide a simple conceptual modelling tool that demonstrates the use of, and stimulates interest in, the novel and powerful knowledge representation based technologies for database and ontology design. Expand
