A Framework for Cooperative Ontology Construction Based on Dependency Management of Modules
To construct large scale ontologies, two major approaches are discussed by many researchers. One is a cooperative construction of ontologies, and the other is a modularization of ontologies. To combine these two approaches, this paper discusses a framework for supporting cooperative ontology construction based on dependency management among modularized ontologies. In such a situation, one of the key issues is the maintenance of consistency among inter-dependent ontologies because each ontology is revised asynchronously by different developers. In order to realize consistent development of ontologies, the framework provides two functions: to manage the dependencies between ontology modules and to keep and restore consistencies between them when they are influenced by changes of other modules. Furthermore, we outline an implementation of our framework in our environment for building/using ontology: Hozo.
