In this talk we introduce OntoWiki, an open-source tool that is developed at the AKSW research group in Leipzig. OntoWiki is a tool providing support for agile, distributed knowledge engineering scenarios. It facilitates the visual presentation of a knowledge base as an information map, with different views on instance data. It enables intuitive authoring of semantic content, with an inline editing mode for editing RDF content, similar to WYSIWIG for text documents. OntoWiki provides sophisticated means for navigating, visualizing and authoring of RDF-based Knowledge Bases. It serves and consumes Linked Data and comprises a comprehensive middleware API for building custom Semantic Web applications. OntoWiki uses RDF in the first place to represent information. For human users, OntoWiki allows to create different views on data, such as tabular representations or maps. For machine consumption it supports various RDF serializations as well as RDFa, Linked Data and SPARQL interfaces. Since its introduction in 2006, the application has evolved into a framework for building Semantic Web applications and was recently updated to support the collaboration across multiple domains and application via Semantic Pingback and RDFauthor.
