Hi Jason,

Is it possible to download a subject of an ontology? Say given a class, download all the sub classes and properties in rdf? I see the download url in the doc, . Let me know, thanks!

I don’t think we offer exactly what you’re asking for. The download link downloads the entire ontology source file in whatever format was submitted to us.

You can retrieve the subclasses of a given class using the “descendants" REST call, e.g.:<>

The format though is JSON (or XML if you specify that).

You might have a look at tools offered by the Protege project (open source / freely available) [1]. I believe the desktop version of Protege has functionality that allows you to extract/copy/move ontology axioms. It also allows you to save your ontology in various formats.

Kind regards,
