Hi,

I am fairly new to the semantic web technology and I am trying to create
my first rdf file.
I am trying to describe the project I am working on. This project is
basically a web-based database front end with some visualization tool
attached. This project has three instances which I of course would like
to describe as well.

At the moment I have been using the doap ontology [1] to define my
project, I though I could you the same 'project' property to defined the
deployed instances but I have been advised on irc (#swig) not to do so
but rather to try to define them as 'deployedInstance' or something
similar (I was told that 'isInstanceOf' might not be the best choice).

Now I am trying to find an ontology which would have this property.

My question is therefore, what is the best way to find an ontology ? Is
there a website which list the known semantic ontology and their
properties and would allow to search for one ?

Of course I would be happy if someone has an idea on an ontology which
already has this property defined.


Best regards,

Pierre
