Information organised in a Topic Map repository should be retrievable by an appropriate query language. Such a query language, AsTMa?, is proposed here for further discussion. It not only allows to define the retrieval process but also gives control over the generated content providing means to transform maps from one ontology to another.

Topic Maps is an excellent paradigm to support human thinking and to visualize networked information. As part of my PhD project, I therefore chose Topic Maps as the conceptual foundation for designing and implementing a software prototype for semantic knowledge retrieval.
