In today’s blog we take a look at the S-CASE Ontology Repository being developed by CERTH.
The S-CASE ontology repository is intended to facilitate interoperability by standardizing a series of logically well defined relationships that act as a connectivity tissue for bringing together heterogeneous ontologies.
In this way, domain ontologies remain independent from the network as a whole and so can each undergo development processes without impacting on one another in complex and difficult to control ways.
This approach can be seen as a continuation and extension of several research and development threads begun in a range of large-scale engineering areas, including software engineering and the efforts within ontological engineering of other European projects.
Each operation will be supported through the web user interface along with the corresponding REST API for accessing the functionalities remotely by any application or module. It will host all ontologies that will be developed within the S-CASE project and will be provided as a Cloud Service over the S-CASE Cloud infrastructure.
The technical infrastructure will support among others the operations of ontology navigation, browsing, searching, visualization, uploading and downloading.
