Reasoning with Ontologies Organization Reasoning adds triples to your system- College Library creates new data. • All Colleges are Organizations. Department • All Libraries are Organizations. Museum • All Departments are Organizations. • All Museums are Organizations.
Example: Modeling a Person• Research (bibo:Document, vivo:Grant, vivo:Project, vivo:Software, vivo:Dataset, vivo:ResearchLaboratory)• Teaching (vivo:TeacherRole, vivo:AdvisingRelatioship)• Services (vivo:Service, vivo:CoreLaboratory, vivo:MemberRole)• Expertise (vivo:SubjectArea)
VIVO Ontology Localization• Different localization required by different institutions – UF, Cornell, IU, WASHU, Scripps• How to make localization: – Adding local namespace: • UF: http://vivo.ufl.edu/ontology/vivo-ufl/ • core: http://vivoweb.org/ontology/core# – Local classes are the subclasses of the VIVO Core • foaf:Agent à foaf:Organization à ufVivo:Non- Governmental Organization
