Listing of 185 Ontology Building Tools

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

Earlier Listing is Expanded by More than 30% At the beginning of this year Structured Dynamics assembled a listing of ontology building tools at the request of a client. That listing was presented as The Sweet Compendium of Ontology Building Tools. Now, again because of some client and internal work, we have researched the space again and updated the listing [1]. All new tools are marked with <New> (new only means newly discovered; some had yet to be discovered in the prior listing). There are now a total of 185 tools in the listing, 31 of which are recently new, and 45 added at various…

The Sweet Compendium of Ontology Building Tools

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

140 Tools: 20 Must Haves, 70 Possible Usefuls, and 50 Has Beens and Marginals Well, for another client and another purpose, I was goaded into screening my Sweet Tools listing of semantic Web and -related tools and to assemble stuff from every other nook and cranny I could find. The net result is this enclosed listing of some 140 or so tools — most open source — related to semantic Web ontology building in one way or another. Ever since I wrote my Intrepid Guide to Ontologies nearly three years ago (and one of the more popular articles of this site, though it is now perhaps a bit…

Ontology-Driven Apps Using Generic Applications

Monday, March 7th, 2011

The Time and Technology is Here to Stand Software Engineering on its Head As an information society we have become a software society. Software is everywhere, from our phones and our desktops, to our cars, homes and every location in between. The amount of software used worldwide is unknowable; we do not even have agreed measures to quantify its extent or value [1]. We suspect there are at least 1 billion lines of code that have accumulated over time [1,2]. On the order of $875 billion was spent worldwide on software in 2010, of which about half was for packaged software and licenses and the…

A New Landscape in Ontology Development Tools

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

…o two pathways: Instances, and their descriptive characteristics, and Conceptual relationships, or ontologies. The ontology build methodology concentrated on the upper half of this diagram (blue, with yellow lead-ins and outcomes) with the various steps overviewed in that installment [2]: Figure 1. Flowchart of Ontology Development Methodology (click to expand) The methodology captured in this diagram embraces many different emphases from current practice:  re-use of existing structure and information assets; conscious split between instance data (ABox) and the conceptual structure (TBox)…

A New Methodology for Building Lightweight, Domain Ontologies

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

…growth and adoption of ontologies. This is also in keeping with the continuous and incremental deployment model that Structured Dynamics has adopted from MIKE2.0 [11]. When this model is applied to the process of ontology development, the basic implementation increments appear as follows: Figure 1. A Phased, Incremental Approach to Ontology Development (click to expand) The first two phases are devoted to scoping and prototyping. Then, the remaining phases of creating a working ontology, testing it, maintaining it, and then revising and extending it are repeated over multiple increments. I…
