This page gives an overview of software tools related to the Semantic Web or to semantic technologies in general. Due to the large amount of tools being created in the community, this site is always somewhat outdated. Contributions and updates are welcomed. See also: Tool Chains

Adding your own

Adding your own tool is as easy as creating a page. The easiest way is to copy the page of some existing tool and modify it to fit your case. Please do provide a release date to support maintaining information in this wiki! The tool will then automatically appear in the below list and on the main page (at least as soon as the server-side page cache is cleared).

Do not forget to use a suitable category to classify the tool, otherwise it will not appear below. Start browsing the existing categories at Semantic Web tool (of course, you can also add new categories if none of the current applies; but try to use self-explaining, general categories that apply to more than one tool!).

If your tool is an OWL 2 implementation or a RIF implementation not yet listed here, please consider to add it.
