Subway Maps in OWL

Home | About DAML | Announcements | Roadmap | Site Search

This directory contains subway-ont.owl (dumpont), an OWL ontology for representing subway maps on the Semantic Web, along with instances for several major subway systems.


We manually generated OWL content based on available subway maps:
Subway Map OWL
Washington DC Metro map dc.owl
Boston MBTA map mbta.owl
San Francisco BART map bart.owl

subway-ont uses a concise representation to associate Lines with an ordered list of Stations. expand.n3 contains some additional rules to directly associate adjacent Stations and link Stations with the Lines they serve.


dc.svg was generated from dc.owl using check.java.
