Hi all,

I think that the specification below can be useful to represent the "schema" of an ontology for non-experts. The one limitation is that it is very OWL oriented (by its intend) and may not cover the full range of expressiveness.

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 cases.

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.
