The Ontology Explorer is a configurable web tool that allows the browsing of any on-line OWL ontology. The tool is mainly oriented to the Domain Expert rather then to the Ontology Expert or developer.
Usually, domain experts have great knowledge about the concepts that concern their expertise area, but their knowledge about ontology implementation is quite absent.
The Ontology Explorer provides more and better functionalities than other tools, dedicated to the same purpose, had before its development began. To enable these functionalities, the Ontology Explorer is designed to be intuitively to use (also for the inexpert user) and many visualization and navigation configuration alternatives are available to the user. It also implements dynamic components that respond to user input, thus enhancing interactivity.
To provide all these features, this tool was implemented with/using new technologies like AJAX and GWT.
