AN APPROACH TO A GRAPHICAL QUERY EDITOR - For Ontology-based Knowledge Management

Markus Schwinn, Norbert Kuhn, Stefan Richter

Abstract

The OnToBau research project aims to provide a way to classify, archive and effectively use business knowledge with the assistance of an ontology-based knowledge archive for small and medium companies of the construction industry. This archive is intended to proactively provide users with information which will assist them in their daily business process handling. The targeted system consists of four main parts. In this paper we mainly discuss a component for querying ontologies easily. We claim that such a component should allow graphical queries in order to be suitable for non-experienced users in our application domain and we present our approach to a visual query system and sketch how this can be embedded in the worker’s environment. This graphical interface will allow a knowledge worker to actively search for information in an ontology and is a first step to a personal agent.
