 Dear all,

On behalf of AKSW research group [1] I’m happy to announce the first
prototype of OntoWiki Mobile, which allows users to collect instance data
and refine structured knowledge bases on-the-go. The development of OntoWiki
Mobile was triggered by users aiming to gather data in field conditions
(e.g. bio-diversity surveys). It allows accessing OntoWiki [2] on a mobile
device, even without persistent data connection and limited electric power
supply.

OntoWiki Mobile is a mobile semantic collaboration platform based on the
OntoWiki framework. It is implemented as an HTML5 web application and
completely mobile device platform independent. The mobile UI was built using
HTML5 and jQuery Mobile specially for mobile devices. It allows simple
navigation through interlinked resources in OntoWiki knowledge bases.
OntoWiki Mobile allows offline access to selected knowledge bases with the
ability to author data offline and synchronize it later once the data
connection becomes available again.
An faceted browsing mode optimized for the mobile use enables OntoWiki
Mobile users to quickly retrieve information on the go. Resource editing in
OntoWiki Mobile is done using RDFauthor. The system makes use of
RDFa-annotations in web views in order to make the RDF model data available
on the client.

The project page can be found at: http://aksw.org/Projects/OntoWikiMobile

A demo is available at: http://m.ontowiki.net/

Thanks to Norman Heino, Sebastian Tramp, Sören Auer for their contributions
during the development of OntoWiki Mobile.
