Do we need specially trained thesaurus and Semantic Web experts to use PoolParty?

No, PoolParty has a graphical user interface that runs in a browser and supports thesaurus management through drag and drop and autocomplete features. After a two-hour training that can be conducted remotely via an application sharing tool, any information worker is ready to create thesauri with PoolParty that automatically conform to Semantic Web standards.

PoolParty was built around a methodology which supports the semi-automatic creation and maintenance of thesauri and taxonomies. See: PoolParty approach for knowledge modeling.
