Building and (Re)Using an Ontology of Air Campaign Planning
January/February 1999 (vol. 14 no. 1)
pp. 27-36

This article is a case study in building and (re)using an ontology in a specific application domain. The authors build a common ontology to serve as a basis for knowledge sharing among several applications in the domain of air campaign planning. They describe how the ontology was built and how several applications make use of it. They also discuss the issues that arose from these tasks.

In particular, the authors discuss lessons learned about how reusable an ontology can be, the limitations of current tools for ontology construction, and how such tools could be extended. Their study looks at the problem of reuse through the combination of existing smaller ontologies as well as through the extraction of a subset of knowledge from a larger ontology.
