Abstract

One of the main problems for the practical use of tools and technologies of the Semantic Web is the difficulty for a non-expert user of conceiving, analyzing, extending and merging ontologies. Despite the various existing approaches for representing, editing, profiling and comparing ontologies, no integrated solution is available for domain experts. In this paper, we present an initial web-based tool developed to partially solve this issue, by simplifying the exploration, modification and profile creation of already existing annotated ontologies. DLP offers the functionality identified as fundamental for enabling a domain expert to start working and extending a partially defined semantic data source, lowering the entry barrier for learning the technicalities behind a standard ontology. Additionally, the tool allows ontology modeling experts to interact with the semantic source using the standard SPARQL language.
