  • Welcome to the Semantic Web Cluster activity

Cluster Task Activities

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).
See recent discussions at http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Breakout_Sessions-Day_1#Technical_Breakout_2b_-_Developing_an_Ontology_for_Services

DSO Workshop May 15-16, 2008

As held Agenda
  • May 15th

8:30 gather, setup, chatting. Please come prepared with: accounts on the cmap server, on planetont and the wiki set up (see below) use cases (see below)

9am, quick intro, review of what we have done, what we plan to achieve

use cases to drive services and service to drive data type needs review of data-type ontologies - ours and others review of service ontologies - ours and others assessment of language encodings (we agreed to use RDF/OWL/OWL-S to start, still okay?)

10:30am break.

11-12:00 working session use cases for data type ontologies

12:00-1:00 lunch

1:00 two more use cases

2:00 continue working session on data ontologies

3:30 break

5:00 regroup and assess, work to data, and match with use cases, prepare for working session on service ontologies

6 pm happy hour, then dinner.

  • May 16th

9am review plans for day

9;15 Services ontology discussion

10:25 wild and crazy ideas from Howard Burrows

11:00 break

11:15 continue working breakout session on service ontologies (generic and spatial) - classes, and hierarchy based on functions, include inputs, outputs and pre-conditions (semantic ones, sorted by type if possible)

12:30 working lunch

1:30-2:30 plenary report and assess continue breakout and/or review match between service input/outputs and data type ontology

2:30 summary discussion

Preparation details
  • Accounts
1. cmap server, contact Rahul
2. planetont.org, contact if you want to upload ontologies here (Peter), otherwise, open access
3. ESIP wiki set up - use this site - please create pages under this heading

Tools we will 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)

Guidelines for collaborating with Cmap

Meta-tags to add when making changes: - you can annotate classes with comments.

Note SWEET 2.0 alpha, NOTE: a word processor should be used to examine the files (not Protege, etc.) http://sweet.jpl.nasa.gov/2.0

Use Cases


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

Data-type Ontologies


Service Ontologies


White Paper/ Terms of Reference



Community processes for ontology development
http://www.planetont.org is now functioning - please use it

Semantic Annotation/tagging

Concept Mapping and beyond
