OntoPop is an open source framework enabling the visualisation, search, exploration and management of ontologies.

Why use OntoPop

OntoPop was created to make ontologies more accessible to a broader range of stakeholders beyond the traditional users of ontologies such as information and data architects.

By providing an intuitive and easy-to-use visual interface, our aim is to make ontologies less abstract and more applicable to real-world use-cases.


Network-based visualisation and exploration


Free-text search and structured query builders


Ontology editing and management


Vocabulary management including synonyms


Export and collaboration
