[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Rachel.Drysdale

Hi Ray,

>Essentially you have created a URL that contains 2 "#" characters. I don't think that this is allowed.

This appears to be a feature of all 'Related Term' fields in the OWL export of our thesaurus.

So there are 1142 such cases.

So I could go to our vendor to query this feature of the OWL export option, or (possibly most expedient way out) I could ask you if any of the other export formats on offer would do instead.  Here is the full range:

Sorry for the long delay. We finally have this figured out.

The error in the file, that prevents parsing is:



[line=121:column=41] IRI '#T#T8798' cannot be resolved against current

base IRI http://localhost/owlfiles/plosthes.2014-5/ reason is: Illegal

character in fragment at index 2: #T#T8798

Validator has been updated to pick this up now. Passing to Ray Fergerson

for user contact.


Essentially you have created a URL that contains 2 "#" characters. I don't

think that this is allowed.

We have also fixed the problem with our validator. It is accessible at:

This device should allow you to detect other errors in your ontology
