Latest Developments to LODE

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7603)


LODE, the Live OWL Documentation Environment, is a service for the generation of human-readable documentation of OWL ontologies and RDFS vocabularies. It automatically extracts classes, object properties, data properties, named individuals, annotation properties, meta-modelling (punning), general axioms, SWRL rules and namespace declarations and renders them as an HTML page designed for easy browsing and navigation by means of embedded links. In this paper, we present an overview of the tool, in particular focusing on the features introduced in the latest available version.
