Silos are pretty.
But data silos stagnate scientific research. Materials scientists require access to databases maintained across the research community for complex, varied, multi-level, mixed-media data. Currently scientists are limited to only those databases and sources they are aware of, and even if they had some way of discovering all possible data sources related to their research, integrating them all into the research process is so time-consuming and problematic as to be prohibitive.

MatOnto Ties Data, Processes and Concepts Together
MatOnto's semantic provenance describes relationships that tie data, processes, and concepts together using a domain-specific conceptual view. The MatOnto semantic web of linked materials data accelerates the design and delivery of advanced materials systems.
Who is it for?
MatOnto is for scientists and leaders in the materials design community who want to improve the way new materials are discovered and existing materials are improved. It's for anyone who wants to unleash the power of data to drive innovation.
What does it do?
MatOnto links native materials data sources into a semantic web. It provides a community-driven ontology for materials data, embedding context and meaning directly into the source data. It then connects your data with other sources to create a global grid of materials knowledge.
How does it work?
MatOnto works by semantically linking data in a global, federated grid. It's not downloaded — it's live, and it's connected.
