Many knowledge organizations and digital repositories have leveraged different software to manage their taxonomies and thesauri. However, some of them do not have enough technical knowledge or experts to create complex structure e.g., OWL. On the other side, SKOS, as a simple language for classifying the knowledge organization systems e.g., thesauri, allows data to be distributed and composed on the Web of Data in a structured way. This short paper presents an approach to expose taxonomies, classification schemes and other types of vocabularies as SKOS by developing a mapping tool. It also visualizes the output in a graphical user interface in order to explore the vocabularies along with their relationships as well.
