Features of ROMULUS

Post thumbnail
  • It provides a high-level view of the foundational ontologies with only the most general concepts common to all implemented foundational ontologies.
  • Foundational ontologies in ROMULUS are modularised
  • Foundational ontology mediation has been performed. This includes alignment, mapping and merging of foundational ontologies.
  • ROMULUS provides detailed taxonomies of each foundational ontology to allow easy browsing of foundational ontologies.
  • ROMULUS allows you to download each foundational ontology module including the integrated foundational ontologies.
  • Metadata of each foundational ontology is available for you
  • A comparison of the included foundational ontologies is available
