The main contribution of this paper is to show how vi- sual representations of information can be based on onto- logical classifications of that information. We first discuss the central role of ontologies on the SemanticWeb. We sub- sequently outline our general approach to the construction of ontology-based visualisations of data. This is followed by a set of examples of ontology-based visualisations which all differ in interesting respects. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of related work.
