    "description": "<p>Vocabularies typically reflect a consensus among experts in a<br />\ncertain application domain. They are thus implemented in collaboration<br />\nof domain experts and knowledge engineers. Particularly the presence of<br />\ndomain experts with little technical background requires a low-threshold<br />\nvocabulary engineering methodology. This methodology should be im-<br />\nplementable without dependencies on complex software components, it<br />\nshould provide collaborators with comprehensible feedback on syntax<br />\nand semantics errors in a tight loop, and it should give access to a human-<br />\nreadable presentation of the vocabulary. Inspired by agile software and<br />\ncontent development methodologies, we define the VoCol methodology<br />\nto address these requirements. We implemented a prototype based on a<br />\nloose coupling of validation and documentation generation components<br />\non top of a standard Git repository. All of these components, even the<br />\nrepository engine, can be exchanged with little effort. By evaluating the<br />\nusefulness of error feedback of different tools in the realistic setting of an<br />\nemerging mobility vocabulary we prove, however, that our choice of the<br />\ncrucial validation component is workable.</p>",
