Hurray. Another ontology fan. I have taken the liberty of using
OwlDoc in Protege to create a browser readable version of your
ontology. It is at
Would you mind if I integrate what you have into the more general
ontology that I have been working on?
(And yes, Rob it does tend to get big, but one can trim it at any
level. I rather see UCDs as a form of topic maps which is quite a close
relative of Ontology. I prefer ontology because I believe one can do
more rigorous reasoning and query with it, but many prefer topic maps
because they are more loose and easy. )
Now that there are two of us interested in Ontology we can form a
group. It has been suggested to me that
Ontology discussions should reside in the data model group with
"[Ontology]" in the subject Re:. So, I
am ccing there too and will take the rest of this discussion there. I
hope you are tuned in Elizabeth.
