Health Ontology Generator: Design And Implementation

Vol. 9  No. 2  pp. 104-112


This paper presents the design and implementation of a Health Ontology Generator (HOG) using a health database such as Microsoft Access or SQL Server. The development of the ontology generator involves building methods for creating and reading the ontology. This research performs both these tasks. In generating the ontology, database tables are treated as classes, fields as functional properties, and records as instances. The ontology generated can be read using third-party software such as Microsoft Word, Excel and Internet Explorer. HOG is implemented using C Sharp.NET on the Windows platform.
