VINE is a tool that allows users to perform fast mappings of terms across ontologies. It has the following features:

  • Performs smart searches finding resources in ontologies by matching
    text contained in the statements where the resource is contained.
  • Can search using regular expressions.
  • Minimum number of clicks to perform mappings.
  • Easy to plug in any arbitrary mapping framework.
  • Non intrusive to imported ontologies. Mapping are stored in an
    external file. Ontologies containing the resources that are being mapped
    are not edited, even if they are localized in a local file.
  • Exports the mappings in a text file. Useful for importing in Excel or a database.
  • Adds metadata to any mapping allowing to assign:
    • time-stamping
    • comments
    • confidence level
