This chapter gives an overview of some editing tools for ontology construction. At the present time, the development of a project like the one of building an ontology demands the use of a software tool. Therefore, it is given a synopsis of the tools that the authors consider more relevant. This way, if you are starting out on an ontology project, the first reaction is to find a suitable ontology editor. Furthermore, the authors hope that by reading this chapter, it will be possible to choose an editing tool for ontology construction according to the project goals. The tools have been described following a list of features. The authors believe that the following features are pertinent: collaborative ontology edition, versioning, graphical tree view, OWL editor and many others (see Appendix 2).
