Ontology creation for the rest of us…

COE is a project whose goal is to develop an integrated suite of software tools for constructing, sharing and viewing OWL encoded ontologies based on CmapTools, a concept mapping software used in educational settings, training, and knowledge capturing. Concept maps provide a human-centered interface to display the structure, content, and scope of an ontology.

Currently, our work focuses on developing conventions for constructing new Cmap OWL ontologies that will assist and guide users when forming class and property relationships among the concepts in the ontology. In addition, we are working on clustering and searching techniques that support the reuse of existing ontologies.
