Functional Ontology and Concept Maps for Knowledge Navigation: An Application Example for Contest Robot

Chao-Chi Chan and Shuen-Ren Yu


Because the volume of web resources (web pages, images, music, video, etc.) continues to increase exponentially, enabling reuse and sharing of creative knowledge in engineering domain becomes our driving force to develop the knowledge map navigation. Map navigation is a way of organizing the world's information geographically. Knowledge maps are used to visualize a set of related information. To solve problems of knowledge sharing and knowledge reusing in engineering domain, this study proposed a knowledge map navigation which is based on functional ontology and concept maps. At last, a case study on contest robot is applied to demonstrate the proposed model can promote the information searching more efficiently. In order to share the functional knowledge model anywhere on the Internet, we use CmapTools which allow users to construct, navigate, share and criticize knowledge models represented as concept to implement that. It shows some benefits from functional ontology-based applications in engineering knowledge management domain.
