Altova SemanticWorks 2006 is the ground-breaking visual RDF/OWL editor from the creators of
XMLSpy. Visually design Semantic Web instance documents, vocabularies, and ontologies then output
them in either RDF/XML or N-triples formats. SemanticWorks 2006 makes the job easy with tabs for
instances, properties, classes, etc., context-sensitive entry helpers, and automatic format
checking. It is the sensible way to put the Semantic Web to work for you.
Altova SemanticWorks 2006
Since its inception, the World Wide Web has changed the way we communicate, the way we do business,
the way we seek information and entertainment - the very way most of us live our daily lives. Today,
the W3C is looking towards the next evolution in Web technologies: the Semantic Web. In the Semantic
Web data itself becomes part of the Web and is able to be processed independently of application,
platform, or domain. Where the current Web is a collection of documents, the Semantic Web is more
like a huge database, in which data on Web pages as well as in databases and legacy systems can
be searched, processed, and acted on by machines in meaningful ways.
The Semantic Web relies on structured sets of metadata and inference rules that allow it to
"understand" the relationship between different data resources. The technologies that form the
basis of the Semantic Web by adding these metadata and inference rules are RDF (Resource Description
Framework) and OWL (Web Ontology Language).

development tool from Altova.
Create Semantic Web Documents Visually
Altova SemanticWorks 2006 allows you to graphically create and edit RDF instance documents,
RDFS vocabularies, and OWL ontologies with full syntax. Context-sensitive entry helpers present you
with a list of permitted choices based on the RDF or OWL dialect you're using, so you can create
valid documents quickly and easily.
SemanticWorks 2006 provides powerful, easy-to-use functionality for:
You can switch from the graphical RDF/OWL view to the text view to see how your document is being
built in RDF/XML or N-triples format, and you can export your file from RDF/XML to N-triples or
vice versa at any time. And, because the RDF/XML or N-triples code is auto-generated based on your
design, you can learn and experiment with the concepts of the Semantic Web without having to write
- Visual creation and editing of RDF, RDF Schema (RDFS), OWL Lite, OWL DL, and OWL Full
documents using an intuitive, visual interface and drag-and-drop functionality
- Syntax checking to ensure conformance with the RDF/XML specifications
- Auto-generation and editing of RDF/XML or N-triples formats based on visual RDF/OWL design
- Printing the graphical RDF and OWL representations to create documentation for Semantic
