Beginning with UMBEL version 1.20, statistics regarding numbers of reference concepts (RCs) in the ontology and splits between SuperTypes (STs) and modules have been moved to the statistics Annex Z document. As a result, earlier statistics in this and other annexes are no longer being updated, which means any statistics cited below may be out of date. Please consult Annex Z for the current UMBEL statistics.


This is a list of the external ontologies classes that are linked to UMBEL reference concepts, current as of the date of this document. This list will evolve over time and the RDF/N3 serialization document will be updated at this URL: https://github.com/structureddynamics/UMBEL/tree/master/External%20Ontologies. Note that some of the current linkages are partial.


UMBEL version 1.50 has active and vetted linkages to:

  • OpenCyc - 33,359 classes
  • Wikipedia - 22,840 articles
  • schema.org - 754 types
  • GeoNames - 688 features
  • DBpedia - 682 DB Ontology classes
  • PROTON - 444 classes.


Jana Vataščinová, as part of his bachelor thesis at University of Economics, Prague, Department of Information and Knowledge Engineering (as supervised by Ondřej Zamazal), has created mappings of selected LOV ontologies to UMBEL. The selections are based on the importance of the vocabularies to LOV (linked open vocabulary)ontologies and LOD (linked open data) datasets. Here are the five mappings. Ontology alignments were first constructed automatically using the LogMap tool and second with a manual revision using UMBEL services, UMBEL mapping guidelines and Protégé.


DOAP(Description of a Project) is a vocabulary for project description. It is used in 23 datasets and has 18 incoming links. Six vocabularies are used in this vocabulary.

Statistics of mappings: Mappings for 2 DOAP classes and 8 external classes used in DOAP (which are not mapped to UMBEL yet) were created.

Listing of DOAP mappings:


The TIME(Time Ontology) defines temporal entities. It is used in 47 datasets and has 30 incoming links.

Statistics of mappings: Mappings for 22 TIME classes were created.

Listing of Time mappings:


TRANSIT(Transit) is a vocabulary for describing transit systems and routes. It is used in 5 datasets and has 1 incoming link.

Statistics of mappings: Mappings for 4 TRANSIT classes and 3 external classes used in TRANSIT (which are not mapped to UMBEL yet) were created.

Listing of Transit mappings:

Open Organizations

OO(Open Organizations) is a vocabulary providing supplementary terms for organizations that wish to publish open data about themselves. It is used in 19 datasets and has 1 incoming link.

Statistics of mappings: Mappings for 4 OO classes and 4 external classes used in OO (which are not mapped to UMBEL yet) were created.

Listing of OO mappings:

ORG Ontology

The ORG (Core Organization) Ontology is a vocabulary for describing organizational structures for a broad variety of types of organization. It is used in 7 datasets and has 23 incoming links. Five vocabularies are used in this vocabulary.

Statistics of mappings: Mappings for 4 ORG classes and 3 external classes used in ORG (which are not mapped to UMBEL yet) were created.

Listing of ORG mappings:


Note: Mappings to the ontologies below may no longer work in part and may have some other issues !!!

Up to version 0.80, mappings with the following ontologies were kept current. Because UMBEL's RefConcept identifiers have been kept constant, these earlier mappings may still work.

Future releases will update mappings to the active and relevant ontologies below.

Following is a listing of other external ontologies linked to UMBEL and their specific reference concept mappings.
