Hi Eli,
 
I'm working on a solution to this problem. Called URIQA (the URI Query Agent) which, given a URI, allows one to
query the web authority of that URI (presuming there is one, such as for an http: URI) to ask for an RDFdescription of
the resource denoted by that URI.
 
Keep an eye on http://sw.nokia.com which should be online soon. 
 
URIQA will be available under an open source license.
 
Cheers,
 
Patrick

Subject: URIs : How to find the ontologies behind them


A question about URIs:
 
The URI for a class does not have to point to a particular resource on the web, it just has to be unique.  An ontology describing that entity may be located somewhere else entirely.
 
If an ontology refers to this class by its URI, how is additional, or even primary, information about that class supposed to be found?  
 
Any help is appreciated.
