Semantic drift is an active research field, which aims to identify and measure changes in ontologies across time and versions. Yet, only few practical methods have emerged that are directly applicable to Semantic Web constructs, while the lack of relevant applications and tools is even greater. This paper presents a novel software tool developed in the context of the PERICLES FP7 project that integrates currently investigated methods, such as text and structural similarity, into the popular

Its applicability and usefulness are validated through two proof-of-concept scenarios in the domains of Web Services and Digital Preservation; especially the latter is a field where such long-term insights are crucial.
