Welcome to the Protege Ontology Library!

This page is organized into the following groupings:

If your ontology is available in multiple formats, please feel free to link to it from multiple sections.

Please make insertions in alphabetical order. Thank you !!!

OWL ontologies

Information on how to open OWL files from the Protege-OWL editor is available on the main Protege Web site. See the Creating and Loading Projects section of the Getting Started with Protege-OWL Web page. Other ways to search for OWL ontologies include using Google:, or the new Semantic Web search engine called Swoogle.

  • MR-MPS-SW : Enterprise Ontologies as a complementary tool to support the adoption of software process quality models. The model selected for this work was the Reference Model MPS for software development (RM-MPS-SW), which is part of the Brazilian Software Process Improvement Program (MPS.BR). The RM-MPS-SW was developed focusing micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), although it is completely suited to large organizations. In this context, this work presents a methodology for the ontology development on the levels G and F of the RM-MPS-SW. Concepts of the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) are included to support adherence to its principle by software companies. The inclusion of BSC (Balanced Scorecard) indicators approximates the model with the strategic planning of the company. The intention is that this methodology can be used as a basis for the representation of the other MPS-SW levels and other software process models.
  • AIM@SHAPE Ontologies: Ontologies pertaining to digital shapes. Source: AIM@SHAPE NoE - Advanced and Innovative Models And Tools for the development of Semantic-based systems for Handling, Acquiring, and Processing knowledge Embedded in multidimensional digital objects.

  • Education Ontology: Ontology for the Minnesota Department of Education based on the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) structures and ISO/IEC 11179 standards. This domain includes information about K-12 students, teachers, schools, districts, enrollments, assessments, USDA food and nutrition programs, and on-line courses. Includes approximately 400 data elements. A case study will be presented at the Semantic Technology conference in March 2006. Feedback ->

  • Infrastructure Product Ontology: An OWL ontology for utility infrastructure products, their attributes, mechanisms, and measures. Products span all five sectors of utilities (Water, Wastewater, Gas, Electricity, and Telecom).
  • iso-metadata.owl: Several ISO Geographic Information Ontologies developed with the Protege-OWL editor. Contributed by Akm Saiful Islam, Bora Beran, Luis Bermudez, Stephane Fellah & Michael Piasecki.
  • A zipped Protégé project of an ontology for currency creation and use. Also contains an "owl". The objective is an active description of all forms of "money" from barter to clearing systems, from precious metal coinage to debt-based fiat. It is oriented towards designers of payment systems and community currency systems. Here is a preview GIF image ! First begun 2008/05/04 and last updated 2008/05/12. v0.0 Contributed by Martin "Hasan" Bramwell
  • New Testament Names: A semantic knowledge base describing named things (people, places, and other classes) in the New Testament, as well as their attributes and relationships. It includes both an ontology and a substantial amount of instance data. NTNames is part of
  • not-galen.owl: A selective adaptation made in 1995 of an early prototype GALEN model; content is not related to or representative of any current or historical OpenGALEN release. Contributed by Ian Horrocks.
  • OGC: Ontology for Geography Markup Language (GML3.0) of Open GIS Consortium (OGC). Contributed by Contributors: Zafer Defne, Akm Saiful Islam and Michael Piasecki.
  • OntoClean: Representation of OntoClean meta-properties and corresponding constraints as a Protege ontology and a set of PAL constraints.
  • OntoTool: An ontology that is used to model Task and Tool features for project realization. This ontology contains essential concepts about the relationship between task and tool and frequently asked questions about tool identification.
  • OSM - Ontology for Support and Management: An ontology that contains all constructs required for the various versions of the Ontology for Support and Management of pervasive services by using ontology-based policy mechanisms run by IST-Context project and the research extensions towards Onto-Context framework to demonstrate advantages when context information is used for controlling management operations.

  • Sort Ontology: Sort ontology is a model of ontologies where ontological classes are represented as sorts with the principles of identity and individuation. The model consists of four meta-classes: TypeSort, QuasitypeSort, RoleSort, and PhaseSort. It is intended to enrich the semantics of ontological classes by embedding abstract-level domain independent knowledge (called meta-knowledge) into OWL ontologies.

Frame-based ontologies

In the context of this page, the phrase "frame-based ontologies" loosely refers to ontologies that were developed using the Protege-Frames editor. For more information on how to open an ontology from the Protege-Frames editor, see the Protege-Frames User's Guide.
