Ontologies are powerful, yet often complex, assets for representing, exchanging, and reasoning over data. Particularly, OWL 2 ontologies have been key for constructing semantic knowledge graphs. Ability to navigate ontologies is essential for supporting various knowledge engineering tasks such as querying and domain exploration. To this end, in this short paper, we describe an approach for projecting the non-hierarchical topology of an OWL 2 ontology into a graph. The approach has been implemented in two tools, one for visual query formulation and one for faceted search, and evaluated under different use cases.
