Hello Jim!

Thanks for the link. Based on a quick inspection your tool appears to 
perform a subset of the things Skosify does. When used with the 
owl2skos.cfg confifuration file provided in the distribution, Skosify 
will also similarly convert OWL ontologies into SKOS. But I haven't 
tested it with the NCI Thesaurus specifically.

There is an example recipe in the owl2skos.cfg configuration file for 
transforming the DCMI Type vocabulary (which uses RDFS Classes to 
represent the different types) into SKOS.

Best regards,
Osma
