The core UMBEL ontology now contains about 26,000 reference concepts organized according to 33 super types. There are more than 60,000 relationships amongst these concepts, resulting in a graph structure of very large size.
It is difficult to grasp this graph in the abstract. Thus, using methods earlier described in our use of the Gephi visualization software , we present below a dynamic, navigable rendering of this graph of UMBEL core:
Note: at standard resolution, if this graph were to be rendered in actual size, it would be larger than 34 feet by 34 feet square at full zoom !!! Hint: that is about 1200 square feet, or 1/2 the size of a typical American house !
This UMBEL graph displays:
- All 26,000 concepts ("nodes") with labels, and with connections shown (though you must must zoom to see)
- The color-coded relation of these nodes to the 33 or so major SuperTypes in UMBEL, as well as the relative position of these clusters with respect to one another, and
- When zooming (use scroll wheel or + icon) or panning (via mouse down moves), wait a couple of seconds to get the clearest image refresh:
