This project describes on the development of Malaysian Tourism Ontology and the
importance of ontology to make knowledge assets intelligently accessible to people in
organizations. Ontology is a long-lived conceptual model that can be used in multiple
applications, providing good opportunities for reuse and interoperability. Ontology
defines a common vocabulary for researchers who need to share information in a domain.
It includes machine-interpretable definitions of basic concepts in the domain and
relations among them. The purpose ontology being develops because to share the
common understanding of the structure of information among people and among
software agents. It can enable re-use of domain knowledge and can avoid "re-inventing
the wheel". If the ontology already exists, it cut short the development part and just
makes use of it. Ontology is aim to introduce standards to allow interoperability in order
to create a machine readable. Moreover, ontology is used to capture knowledge, create a
shared understanding between humans and for computers, make knowledge machine
processable and makes meaning explicit by definition and context. Domain knowledge
need to be analyzed in order to make it more meaningful and towards creating a machine
readable program. This ontology is created using Protege 3.2 Beta, an integrated software
tool used to develop knowledge-based system that includes a knowledge base about a
domain and programs that include rules for processing the knowledge and for solving
problems relating to the domain. This application is developed using Protege-3.2, an
advanced technology tool use in problem solving and decision-making in a particular
domain or field of knowledge.
