Hi Thejas,

You can, but don't have to combine two ontologies. You may use the parts 
or full ontologies which were shared here for your task at hand.

Please consider checking the documentation first and try to get the 
answers your are looking for. Martin Hepp did an excellent job in 
explaining them.

Every time you ask a question here which could be answered in 5min on 
one of those pages, you filling the inbox of 73 people who have 
subscribed to this mailing list.


Best regards,
Niklas
