AbstractThe Classification Ontology allows assets to be holistically classified using a controlled vocabulary or taxonomy.
Vocabulary instances inherit from the Classification Class thus allowing a Classifiable instance to be classified
This is useful for vocabularies that are not stable. The introduction of new terms into the vocabulary does not require a change of the ontology.
The use of subClassificationOf creates the transitive taxonomical relationship amongst the nodes of the vocabulary. The isClassifiedBy property is transitive over the subClassificationOf Property. The use of the class Classifiable allows any instance or descendant class of this to become classifiable. Currently, Assets are the only subClassOf of Classifiable.
This interface abstraction allows us the flexibility to make other resource types classifiable in the future.
Overview Of Terms
An alphabetical index of the ontology terms, divided into classes, properties and individuals. All the terms are hyperlinked to their detailed description for quick reference.
|Label||Generic Classifiable Class|
Generic Classifiable Class - inheriting from this makes the descendant Classifiable by a Classification
|Label||Generic Classification Class|
Generic Classification Class. Vocabulary instances would be of this type.
|Label||Parent-child transitive relationship between Classifications|
Transitive property that allows classifications to be related to parent classifications
