The Support Tool for OWL Ontology Evaluation (OntoKBEval) has been developed to apply Description Logics reasoning to ontology evaluation by deriving information from knowledge bases. The principal objective is to evaluate ontologies and to present results using a user-friendly visualized interface to users. OntoKBEval offers hierarchical diagrams describing the structure of OWL-DL ontologies divided into the description logics view of TBoxes and ABoxes. Furthermore, corresponding detailed information is offered for these structures to guide further evaluation directions. The three main methods for ontology evaluation are: (i) quick-view ontology evaluation (providing a keyword search for named concepts); (ii) general ontology evaluation (performing a more comprehensive TBox- and ABox-based evaluation); (iii) multi-file ontology evaluation (facilitating multiple OWL ontology evaluation by offering basic TBox and ABox information). The implementation relies on the OWL-DL reasoner RacerPro to support reasoning functionalities
