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 As a result, earlier statistics in this and other annexes are no longer being updated, which means any statistics cited below may be out of date.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: Note that some of the current linkages are partial.


UMBEL version 1.20 (both 'core' and the 'geo', 'attributes' and 'entities' modules) has active and vetted linkages to:

  • OpenCyc - 35,302 classes
  • Wikipedia - 26,390 articles
  • - 754 types
  • GeoNames - 688 features
  • DBpedia - 682 DB Ontology classes
  • 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 other external ontologies linked to UMBEL and their specific reference concept mappings.
