About VINE


VINE: Vocabulary Integration Environment

Formerly a standalone application, the VINE tool has been completely rewritten as a web application and integrated in the MMI Ontology Registry and Repository (ORR)

The VINE mapping builder allows to create and edit mappings between concepts and terms
in multiple ontologies or controlled vocabularies. Mapping between
controlled vocabularies in a given domain is essential to
interoperability between different data systems in the domain. In other
words, it is important to have a machine-readable way for a search
computer to understand how terms are related (for example, if one term
is equivalent to, more general than, or narrower than another term).

For more information, please see the Working with Mappings section in the MMI ORR User Manual.
