What they say[edit]

“The Protégé-OWL editor is an extension of Protégé that supports the Web Ontology Language (OWL). OWL is the most recent development in standard ontology languages, endorsed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to promote the Semantic Web vision. An OWL ontology may include descriptions of classes, properties and their instances. Given such an ontology, the OWL formal semantics specifies how to derive its logical consequences, i.e. facts not literally present in the ontology, but entailed by the semantics. These entailments may be based on a single document or multiple distributed documents that have been combined using defined OWL mechanisms (see the OWL Web Ontology Language Guide).

The Protégé-OWL editor enables users to:

Load and save OWL and RDF ontologies.

Edit and visualize classes, properties, and SWRL rules.

Define logical class characteristics as OWL expressions.

Execute reasoners such as description logic classifiers.

Edit OWL individuals for Semantic Web markup.”


This is written in Java, so is multi-platform software.
