This is a list of the external ontologies classes that are linked to UMBEL subject concepts. This list will evolve over time and the RDF/N3 serialization document will be updated at this URL: Note that the current linkages are partial.


UMBEL version 1.00 has active and vetted linkages to:

  • OpenCyc version 3.0 - 27,917 classes
  • DBpedia version 3.51 - 257 DB Ontology classes; 16,884 direct mappings from RefConcepts to categories and pages (umbel:correspondsTo); links to 2,130,021 unique DBpedia pages, 876,125 of which with a specific type
  • PROTON - 444 classes.


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 the external ontologies linked to UMBEL and the specific reference concept mappings.
