Ontologies define the context and provide the vocabulary used to describe your web page with SHOE. Before you annotate your page with SHOE you must choose an ontology. This page can help you decide which of the most commonly used SHOE ontologies are right for you. If you cannot find a suitable ontology here, more ontologies are available from the SHOE research web site or you can create your own ontologies.
