OntoAtlas plugin visualises ontologies inside a context. First, the user can create a context out of non ontological textualÂa resources. Plugin can out of a repository of a documents create a semantic landscape, showing topics present in the corpus as higher ground in the landscape. Documents are also positioned on this landscape near the topics most relevant to them. Next, OntoAtlas visualises any ontology on top of this semantic landscape, providing zoom in and zoom out features, contextualising each ontology concept by its position on the landscape. The plugin is used whenever there is need to understand an ontology in the context of some non ontological resources. For example, it can be used to select the best ontology to model a specific context. It can also be used to quickly check the coverage of an ontology and identify knowledge not yet modelled with the ontology.

Last, it can offer help when populating an ontology. Individuals can be used for the creation of the context, and the relative position between ontology concepts and documents giving insight to the correct annotation.
