Completely visual representation of the ontology, to help understanding for people not skilled in logic.
A Graphol ontology is a graph: no formulas or textual syntax, only nodes and edges.
Graphol's basic shapes are taken directly from ER diagrams, for easy understanding.
Maximum expressive capability: Graphol can graphically represent OWL 2 ontologies fully.
Complex OWL 2 axioms rendered through combination of simple nodes and edges in the ontology diagram.
Graphol is equipped with a custom graphical editor: Eddy.
Full support for Graphol syntax, automatic composition, real-time syntactic checking.
Export to OWL 2 for interoperability with OWL 2 editors and reasoners.
