Hi all,

we are glad to announce that version 2.0 of the Visual Notation for OWL 
Ontologies (VOWL) has been published a few weeks ago. Along with the 
specification, we released a Protégé plugin and a web tool that 
implement large parts of VOWL. The works may be of interest to those of 
you who would like to visualize (smaller) ontologies in an intuitive 
way. They can be tested online at: http://vowl.visualdataweb.org

We are currently working on an improved JSON structure and additional 
functionality for the web tool (WebVOWL) to allow for an easier 
transformation of OWL to JSON and to provide a more compact 
visualization for larger ontologies. We are also planning to integrate 
further visual elements from the spec into the Protégé plugin 
(ProtégéVOWL). VOWL itself will also be advanced in the future to 
consider further OWL elements (particularly from OWL 2) and additional 

Note that the focus of VOWL 2 is on the ontology schema (i.e. the 
classes, properties and datatypes, sometimes called TBox), while the 
focus of VOWL 1 was on the integrated representation of classes and 
individuals (TBox and ABox) - which is, however, still possible with VOWL 2.
