Abstract

When modeling tasks are performed, it is important that the different modeling team members share a common vocabulary. This implies not only agreement on the terminology itself but especially on the meaning of the terms used. To this end it comes in handy to have graphical tools for sharing and analyzing the knowledge dispersed throughout different sources. In this paper we present RCMTool, a tool for creating References-enriched Concept Maps (RCM). This technique has been specially designed to facilitate the compact presentation and comparison of different definitions provided by multiple authors in diverse sources. This paper presents the main features of RCMTool, based on the development of an RCM metamodel and the inclusion of a natural language processing engine.
