Ontology Management


The Optique platform only offers a limited ontology editor. Protege is the recommended tool for ontology development. The ontology file can be uploaded and vizualized in the Optique platform.


Several ontologies and even version of the same ontology can be managed by the Optique platform.

1. Once Optique platform is installed (ref. installing Optique), navigate to the ontologies menu.

2. Select your ontology file from a location and import the ontology using the upload function.

3. A build-in function to add VQS specific annotations is available. Press the VQS annotation icon.

4. After running this function, it is recommended to download the ontology with annotation definitions back to your ontology editor tool.

5. Edit the concepts and properties according to VQS requirements.

6. Upload the annotated ontology back to the Optique platform (see step 2).
