A Practical Guide To Building OWL Ontologies Using Prot´eg´e 4

and CO-ODE Tools

Edition 1.1


This guide introduces Prot´eg´e 4 for creating OWL ontologies. Chapter 3 gives a brief overview of the OWL ontology language. Chapter 4 focuses on building an OWL-DL ontology and using a Description Logic Reasoner to check the consistency of the ontology and automatically compute the ontology class hierarchy. Chapter 7 describes some OWL constructs such as hasValue Restrictions and Enumerated classes, which aren’t directly used in the main tutorial.
