Wandora is a general purpose information extraction, management and publishing application based on Topic Maps and Java. Wandora has graphical user interface, layered and merging information model, multiple visualization models, huge collection of information extraction, import and export options, embedded HTTP server with several output modules and open plug-in architecture. Wandora is a FOSS application with GNU GPL license.
Wandora is well suited for constructing ontologies and information mashups. Wandora is capable of extracting and converting a wide range of open data feeds to topic map formats (see image below). Beyond topic map conversion, this feature allows Wandora user to aggregate multidimensional information mashups where information from Flickr interleaves with information from GeoNames and YouTube, for example.
This website, WandoraWiki, is a home of Wandora software application. To contribute Topic Maps community, Wandora Team has converted several well known ontologies to Topic Maps format. These ontologies: WordNet, OpenCyc, Gene Ontology, Gellish, and Finnish General Upper Ontology (YSO) are available at Topic Map Library.
