MetaDesk is an RDF authoring tool that emphasizes entry of facts, rather than construction of ontologies. MetaDesk places no restrictions on vocabulary-users can invent terms on-the-fly, which the system converts into underlying RDF structures..
MetaDesk was initiated and developed at Information Sciences Institute - Distributed Scalable Systems Division by Dr. Robert M. MacGregor, Dr. Baoshi Yan, and Sameer Maggon. For the good of the project and to help the community, MetaDesk is now released as an Open Source project under Mozilla Public License 1.1. It is now being maintained by Dr. Baoshi Yan.
