Development and Visualization of Domain Specific Ontology using Protege


Background/Objectives: The research aims to explore differences among various ontology development tools, its ­languages; finally developed and visualized ontology on specific domain. Methods/Analysis: Railway Enquiry System (RES) ontology is being developed with the help of Protege tool and visualized using TGViz tab. It involves creation of various classes and their instances so that a person can find references to its query. Findings: The following manuscript makes readers aware of concept of Semantic Web because the search performed by today’s search engines is based on keyword extraction technique which leads to irrelevant and incomplete results marked with low precision and high recall. Developed ontology depicts real world scenario of railway reservation system. With this ontology, a person can check its seat availability, train fare details, PNR status and many more. Improvements/Applications: The given ontology can be extended to develop railway tracking web based application using Web Ontology Language (OWL) and Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL).
