Abstract

At present, the Web offers available information to people in diverse ways. With the initiative of Semantic Web, the aim is to make the content of Web pages available in a way that allows people and computers to “understand” this information following frameworks commonly agreed upon by means of ontologies.

To improve the selection of ontologies, this chapter describes the ONTOMETRIC method which allows the users to measure the suitability of existing ontologies, regarding the requirements of their necessities.
