Visualization for Ontology Evolution
2016 (English)In: VOILA 2016 Visualization and Interaction for Ontologies and Linked Data: Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Visualization and Interaction for Ontologies and Linked Data / [ed] Valentina Ivanova; Patrick Lambrix; Steffen Lohmann; Catia Pesquita, Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen University , 2016, 54-67 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
One of the challenges for the ontology engineering community is theuser involvement in the engineering process. Ontologies are not static entities andthere is a demand for tools to support the user during the ontology evolution pro-cess. This paper aims to provide a set of functionality requirements for ontologyevolution systems, with a particular focus on the visualization of the ontologies,their versions and information needed for ontology evolution tasks. Further, wereview the current state of the art in ontology evolution systems with respect tothe requirements and the visualization. We also view ontologies as software anddiscuss approaches from the software visualization area that could be used forontology evolution visualization.
