Read More

Import/Export (incl. Excel)

You can import your existing taxonomies into PoolParty. The software supports the import of Excel sheets and all common serializations for RDF data. PoolParty taxonomies or sub-trees of it can be exported in different formats as well.

Read More

Visual Browser

PoolParty provides alternative views to the taxonomy hierarchy tree. Knowledge engineers can efficiently browse through extensive knowledge models.

Read More

Full-blown Extractor API

The Extractor API enables you to do highly precise entity extraction based on a rich set of parameters.The API services can be used instead of SPARQL queries and make semantic technologies accesible to developers with a broad skill-set.

Read More

Workflow Management

PoolParty provides effective workflows for the approval of new concepts in a collaborative project setting. The suggested concept dashboard allows the knowledge engineer to keep track of suggestions and encourage review processes in a streamlined manner.

Read More


This advanced feature allows you to express implicit context information around your SKOS concept in a highly precise manner.

Read More

Rollback & History

The taxonomy development process can be tracked via the History Management functionality. By creating snapshots, previous project versions can be preserved and restored on demand.

Read More


The RESTful API enables you to integrate your taxonomy with third-party systems. All data that can be managed or retrieved via the GUI can also be accessed via the API.

Read More

Ontology Management

The module allows you to extend the expressiveness of your taxonomy. You can create specific relations and attributes. You can reuse existing ontologies from the PoolParty libary and combine them to custom schemes (views) for your specific knowledge model.

Read More

Advanced SKOS View

You have extended possibilities to express relations and contextual information in your knowledge model.

Read More

Custom Reports

PoolParty allows to create custom reports and provides a collection of reports by default that can be exported. For example, you can generate a synonym list which can be used to extend Google’s customized search engine or MS Sharepoint.

Read More

Vocabulary Mapping

Different departments may need different taxonomy versions. The mapping functionality can automatically detect the same concepts across taxonomies / projects, which can then be linked with each other. Overall consistency is maintained. By linking taxonomies, knowledge models get even more expressive.

Read More

Linked Data Enrichment

Concepts can be automatically enriched with additional resources as images or geoinformation from Linked Data sources. You can extend the concepts  also by synonyms, definitions and equivalents in other languages.

Read More

Linked Data Frontend

Taxonomies and ontologies can be published and browsed by external parties. Every concept has an URI that can be consistently reused in another context. The Linked Data frontend is highly customizable to corporate needs.
