Steps to use the service


  1. Make an ontology diagram using the Chowlk Visual Notation and diagrams.net.
  2. Ensure the following in your ontology diagram.
    • The namespace block must indicate all the prefixes and namespaces used in the model.
    • The metadata block must contain the actual annotation property elements, aliases are not allowed. For instance, the user should type owl:versionInfo instead of "version" to indicate the current version of the ontology.
    • The source and target of all the arrows in the diagram are connected to a block. This means that relationships between properties (e.g. rdfs:subPropertyOf) can only use the Option 1 to being able to generate them in OWL code.
  3. Export your drawio diagram as an XML file.
  4. Choose your XML file and press submit.
