PRACTICAL ONTOLOGY DEVELOPMENT - Some Lessons Learnt

Rolf Grütter, Bettina Waldvogel, Curdin Derungs

Abstract

Ontology engineering is a well travelled ground, at least from a theoretical point of view. Long before the Semantic Web became popular, principles for the design of ontologies were established and, recently, guidelines and methods for building ontologies were published. Despite this guidance, there are issues in practical ontology development, which are not covered in the literature. This paper discusses some problems that occurred during the manual construction of an OWL application ontology and that required design decisions by the developers.
