OntoSpere3D is a visualization tool for ontologies that uses a 3-dimensional space, where information is enriched by visual cues (as the colour or the size of visualized entities). The tool aims at tackling visualization issues for ontology visual models by adopting a dynamic collapsing mechanism and different views, at different granularities in order to grant a constant navigability of the rendered model.

An intuitive navigation interface, featuring direct manipulation of the scene (rotation, panning, zoom, object selection, etc.) allows domain experts, who have little technical skills in the field of Semantic Web, to graphically inspect, modify and review ontology components.
