Abstract

Ontologies have been widely used in almost any field of application. The use of ontologies should involve the possibility of evaluation of the quality and correctness of them. Some tools and metrics have been proposed to reach this goal. ONTOMETRIC, OntoQA and Protégé represent the most important tools to evaluate ontologies. On the other hand, diverse cohesion, coupling and ranking metrics have also been proposed, as well as methodologies such as OntoClean. This paper analyses these tools and metrics, compare them and finally reviews the current state-of-the-art concerning to ontology metrics.
