This paper describes a query language for topic maps called tolog. This query language is inspired by Prolog and, as described in this paper, supports everything described in the requirements for the ISO topic map query language TMQL. It has a clear and simple syntax, and its basic features are easy to implement.

This paper describes the language as implemented, extensions to make it serve as a full TMQL, explores possible uses of it, and discusses implementation considerations.

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.
