Ontologies with SciBite: Why simplifying visualisation and curation is better for everyone

Ontologies have become a key piece of infrastructure for organisations as they look to manage their metadata to improve the reusability and findability of their data. This is the second blog in our blog series 'Ontologies with SciBite'. Follow the blog series to learn how we've addressed the challenges associated with both consuming and developing ontologies.

Ontologies with SciBite

As with most visualisation techniques, there is no single ‘best’ way to view an ontology that fits all users and all applications. Some applications benefit from a tree view, while views providing an easily digestible high-level summary, such as heat maps or bubble diagrams will make more sense for others.

Tools that presents multi-relational ontologies in an easily consumable format have proved elusive. SciBite’s brand-new ontology management platform CENtree provides a simple interface to navigate and make common changes to ontologies, lowering the barrier for users to contribute to editing and reducing the bottleneck of having to rely on ontology experts.

We’ve designed a highly intuitive interface that allows users to easily add, replace or remove an ontology class, change its location in a hierarchy to reflect a new sub-class relationship, and enrich it with new metadata such as synonyms or text definitions.

Look out for the next blog in our ‘Ontologies with SciBite’ series where we’ll discuss the benefits of facilitating collaboration and integration. If you haven’t already read our previous blog on the benefits of centralising Ontology Management.
