OntoConto is a plugin that visualises ontology alignment and offers functionality to edit, store and load alignments. To visualise the alignment first two ontologies are partially visualised side by side. It is easy to navigate to a certain part of ontology. Next the user can request for automatic generation of an alignment between ontologies with several methods from the alignment server, or start a new manual alignment. Mappings of the alignment are visualised as strings spanning the two ontologies.

OntoConto can be a great help when engineering an ontology as it visualises it in the context of another networked ontology. An engineer can quickly understand the differences of coverage and structure between the ontology being worked on and the context ontology. Second, OntoConto is a great tool to help a domain expert create a manual alignment. The user can first check several automatic alignments, select the best one and manually edit it to remove any mistaken mappings, or add missing ones. OntoConto also hides all of the ontology notations making it easy to use for any user unfamiliar with ontologies.
