OWL Mobile: Ontology Browser for iPhone/iTouch

June 30th, 2008

The Tetherless World invites users of Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch to try out our new ontology browser, OWL Mobile.

OWL Mobile is powered by Jena and Pellet, operating remotely, to provide speed and battery performance mobile devices users expect from their applications. Load one or more ontologies through the Load Ontologies tab. Supply a URL to a custom ontology or use the list of past ontologies. Once you’ve loaded an ontology, use the “Classes”, “Properties”, and “Individuals” tabs to browse through the ontology. Clicking on an item will expand it and give additional information about that particular object. Links which point to other members of the ontology will switch to the appropriate URI when clicked. External links such as web pages, email address, and phone numbers will open the appropriate application on iPhone (phone numbers won’t work on the iTouch) when activated.

Point Safari to http://onto.rpi.edu/demo/owlmobile2/ to try the application. Feel free to bookmark it or add it to the home screen for easy access.

    Sorry… I’m getting a JavaScript error on my iPod Touch with v 2.1 software, and it also doesn’t load in the latest builds of Safari. I’m compiling a list of OWL resources, and would love to add this, but not if I can’t try it out!

    Cheers,
    Leland
