Abstract
In this paper we present the architecture of the browser-based community-driven ontology engineering platform Ontoverse. We will present the architectural needs and designs for an extensible collaborative ontology platform as well as the current implementation based on tuplespaces. In this context we briefly introduce the SQLSpaces and the Semantic Web Application Toolkit (SWAT). To provide interactive collaborative means for editing, merging, and discussing about ontologies adequate visualization techniques are needed to support the ontology designers and ontology users. Therefore we introduce a visualization method called SmartTree that implements focus and context techniques.
