Facilitating Ontology Co-evolution with Ontology Instance Migration

Mark Fischer, Juergen Dingle

Abstract

An ontology is typically defined in terms of some vocabulary that is defined using other ontologies. When the vocabulary changes, it is important for a dependent ontology to evolve in a consistent manner. Automating the migration of ontologies based on changes to their vocabulary is requisite to proper adoption of ontologies for varying fields of use. Oital is a transformation language capable of automatically migrating dependent ontologies. It helps make ontologies easier to maintain as they evolve.
