Abstract

In the present study, an attempt has been made to visualise relationships among concepts using concept maps. Identification and categorisation of relationships is a fundamental process in effective knowledge organisation and retrieval. This cognitive process of identification of relationships can be facilitated by generating concept maps. Basic concept maps have been developed for an interdisciplinary subject domain; accelerator driven systems (ADS). These concept maps can be used as aids for conceptualisation in a domain ontology.
