Brief Overview of T-TREE: The TROPES Taxonomy Building Tool

Jerome Euzenat


TROPES is an object-based knowledge representation system. It allows the representation of multiple taxonomies over the same set of objects through viewpoints and provides tools for classification (identification) of objects and categorisation (classification) of classes from their descriptions. T-TREE is an extension of TROPES for the construction of taxonomies from objects. Data analysis algorithms consider TROPES objects for producing TROPES taxonomies. Thus, data analysis is integrated into the knowledge representation system. Moreover, the original bridge notion permits the comparison and connection of adjacent taxonomies.
