Properties within SMW can easily be mapped to terms in existing ontologies, through the "Equivalent URI" property:

http://semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/Property:Equivalent_URI

Also, for visualizing and editing ontologies directly, you should probably check out the Halo extension:

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the clarification. If so, what are the best practices for
using SMW with potentially multiple ontologies as the data model? By
mapping categories to classes in these ontologies? If import doesn't
really work, how are categories and properties mapped to ontological
terms?
