Data-type and Service Ontology

Part of the cluster activity involves developing a community-based set of ontologies for use in
Earth Sciences. The first step is to address data-types and services (web services).
The activity is based on use cases (see below) and revolves around practical workshop
sessions held in conjunction with ESIP and NASA meetings. It involves a small groups of
active ontology developers motivated by funded projects.
See recent discussions at http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Breakout_Sessions-Day_1#Technical_Breakout_2b_-_Developing_an_Ontology_for_Services

Tools we use

Cmap - the Concept Mapping Tool

Protege - ontology editor - download

SWOOP - Ontology editor

When making CMAP modifications that you want others to see, make them using CMAP's Shared Cmaps capability:

  • Within CMAP, select Shared CMAPs option when opening the file.
  • Navigate to the shared CMAP directory for this work: "Shared Cmaps in Places -> IHMC Public Cmaps (3) -> Users -> ESIP-SemanticWeb
  • Two folders (data-type and services)
  • Consider annotating concepts (classes) with comments.
  • Read the guide for ontology development which indicates how sub-classes are denoted ('are'), individuals/ instances ('is'), etc.

Background ontologies (domain)

Accounts you will need

* cmap server, contact Rahul
* ESIP wiki set up - use this site - please create pages under this heading

Use Cases


  • Use cases, please use the format (template and example in the link above).
