i am about to work on semantic web search. so,for that i require some ontology that i can use as a base and use it in protoge. i tend to then modify it,if required and then use SPARQL to query data from it. there are so many ontology available ,which should i use ?

i came to know that SPARQL works well with rdf and with OWl and in protoge 3.4,SPARQL works on serializied version of owl. would this hamper ? this work is related to my college project

maybe you should explain more about your assignment, once that is clear someone can give you advice on a pre-existing ontology that will fit some of your parameters.

The problem of finding the right ontology is a recurring one, and many questions have been asked along the same line, either in general (how can I find relevant ontologies? [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]) or more specific (what is the best ontology for task XYZ? [10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51]). Take a look at these questions, you may find ways to get the ontology you need.

Well, if you have an ontology in OWL, then it can be written in RDF, and therefore it can be queried in SPARQL. So, unless I don't understand the specifities of your project, I think there is no problem there.

When I say it's a recurring question, I mean it.

hmm... someone should build an app for this sort of thing... :)

What's the conclusion of all these question? - Personal advice is still the best one here. It's horrible to find appropriate ontologies month after intensive searches, because they are hidden well in our universal information space. I suggest to work on a guide for "ontology marketing" or something like that, because is crucial to establish more easily "shared understanding". Don't hesitate to contact me, if you plan to do so ;)
