Ontology Visualization Tutorial at the 9th Intl. Protégé Conference

Presenter: Jennifer Vendetti
Time: Sunday, July 23rd, 2006, 4:00-5:30PM PST
Location: James H. Clark Center (room number T.B.A.), Stanford University

Tutorial Description

This tutorial will focus on several Protégé plug-ins that have been developed specifically for the purpose of visualizing ontologies. The first portion of the tutorial will be a hands-on walk-through of the graph widget tutorial that is available on the Protégé Web site. The graph widget is a custom slot widget plug-in that allows users to graphically create and populate instances of classes. It is very useful as a) an alternative to Protégé Forms for entering instance data, b) as a way to visualize networks of instances, and c) as a way to visualize relationships between instances. The second portion of the tutorial will be a demonstration of the Ontoviz and TGViz tab plug-ins. If time permits at the end of the tutorial, there will also be a demonstration of a new visualization plug-in called the Impact & Alignment Tab, which is a work in progress and will be released in the fall. The target audience for this tutorial are Protégé users with little exposure to the existing visualization plug-ins that are currently available. If users plan to follow the hands-on portion of the tutorial, basic experience with navigating the Protégé user interface will be assumed. Attendees should know how to perform rudimentary tasks such as opening projects and creating new classes, slots, and instances.
