There is a CMAP plug in for Protege, it is map2owl. It does not translate, but instead it uses OWL constructs to represent the CMAP. |
Having the cmap plug in into the protege environment makes it a lot easier for the "capture" and "formalization" processes to be easily integrated. the cmap interface is very similar to the one provided by CMAP tools, it has almost the same features. When the information required has been captured, then it is very easy to "formalize" it. The map2owl plug in talks to the OWL plug in, this makes it possible to have the cmpa view and the OWL-plug in view synchronized. The direct manipulation interface provided also facilitates that domain experts work directly with the ontology without being aware of this.
During the development of ontologies the knowledge elicitation is facilitated by means of cmaps; one can also use other methods and techniques, but from my experience CMAPS are quite useful, particularly when developing ontologies -within the ontology community others have other opinions about concept maps.
The url for the map2owl plug in is http://map2owl.sourceforge.net/ Please don't be afraid, I have not had any time to translate the web site in English, so for the moment the information in that url is in Spanish. But the plug in it self is in English. It does work with Protege 3.X not with P4 -not yet.
