web ontology language (OWL)

Web Ontology Language (OWL) is a formal web ontology language for the exchange of ontologies in the World Wide

Web(WWW). This means formalizations of knowledge domains and concept systems.

The OWL language consists of classes, attributes and associations, and places these in hierarchical relationships to each other. Whereby the attributes and associations are summarized and called properties of a class. OWL offers possibilities to precisely define classes and everything that belongs to them and to formally describe concepts of a domain and their relationships. OWL can be used to perform certain logical and mathematical operations

and to define extending or restricting statements such as at most or at least. The Web Ontology Language was specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and is one of the markup languages that establish relationships among information on the semantic Web. The Resource Description Framework (RDF) serves as the exchange syntax.
