Freebase. Listing of 185 Ontology Building Tools. At the beginning of this year Structured Dynamics assembled a listing of ontology building tools at the request of a client.

Listing of 185 Ontology Building Tools

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 times since the first release.

<Newest> reflects updates — most from the developers themselves — since the original publication of this post. Downloads - Cambridge Semantics. We are very happy with your decision to download Anzo!

Download Center. The Sweet Compendium of Ontology Building Tools. Download as PDF 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 Sweet Compendium of Ontology Building Tools

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 long in the tooth), I have been intrigued with how these semantic structures are built and maintained. That interest, in no small measure, is why I continue to maintain the Sweet Tools listing.

An ontology describes the concepts and relationships of a particular knowledge domain, while specifying vocabulary and semantics for that domain. Download KMgen which is free to use. Chimaera Home Page. Chimæra Software Description Chimaera is a software system that supports users in creating and maintaining distributed ontologies on the web.

Chimaera Home Page

Two major functions it supports are merging multiple ontologies together and diagnosing individual or multiple ontologies. It supports users in such tasks as loading knowledge bases in differing formats, reorganizing taxonomies, resolving name conflicts, browsing ontologies, editing terms, etc. The user manual may be viewed from here. For a graphical presentation of Chimaera, run through the tutorial or see this movie.

In fact we use Anzo at Cambridge Semantics to run our entire company, including CRM Billing—Let individual team members track their time in simple spreadsheets that automatically keep per-client totals up-to-date and immediately visible in Anzo on the Web reports. A.k.a.® Information Governance Software. Effective RIM taxonomies are carefully designed arrangements of terms (metadata) generally custom built to fit a particular environment.

a.k.a.® Information Governance Software

How terms are arranged in a taxonomy is generally based on the content management environment – taxonomies can be simple lists or hierarchies used for searching and/or browsing, or can be more complex arrangements that support a range of information governance processes such as access, privacy and records retention. a.k.a.® delivers the means for organizations to build a multiplicity of taxonomies and controlled vocabularies by combining entities and relationships in many different ways including: ListsHierarchiesFile plansBusiness classification schemesThesauriData mapsEntity modelsOrganizational structuresWorkflows and processes a.k.a.® enables construction of business classification schemes in accordance with ISO 15489 Records Management DIRKS Methodology. A.k.a.® manages every aspect of taxonomy development and significantly reduces time and effort: Ontology editor.
