Question 3a Ontology Value -     (1A45)

"A systematic way of looking inside databases established or maintained by others. Instructions for looking."     (1A46)

Question 3b Ontology Issues -     (1A47)

"Unfamiliarity with the terminology and what exists versus what we wish for.     (1A48)

overlay and compare large quantities of nearly similar structured     (1A50)

specifications from project to project"     (1A51)

Question 3c Ontology Problems -     (1A52)

quantities of nearly similar structured specifications from project to project"     (1A56)

"Develop uniform locations of subject matters.     (1A58)

Share properties and data descriptions based on their number,     (1A59)

or address in mutual locations.     (1A60)

Use more visual languages and symbols rather than terms."     (1A61)

Question 4aGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A62)

Term: performance     (1A63)

Question 4a2 Additional Remarks -     (1A74)

"Specifying by performance requirements was developed in California     (1A75)

in the 70s because the state needed A LOT of schools to be built     (1A76)

quickly and cheaply. The government defined what they required by     (1A77)

a school, local architects and contractors were hired and schools     (1A78)

were built in every shape, size, color you can imagine. We need     (1A79)

performance requirements for the semantic web."     (1A80)

editor assistant to eliminate what does not belong, then     (1A111)

assemble into a picture."     (1A112)

Question 4d2 Additional Remarks -     (1A125)

"BIM is concerned with spaces, relationships and properties. The closest     (1A126)

we come to words is keynotes and CSI section numbers. Also, external     (1A127)

references serve a critical role. Perhaps this may be like importing     (1A128)

lower and upper level ontologies."     (1A129)

Question 4h2 Additional Remarks -     (1A190)

"Need to show project architects and data architects where they need     (1A191)

to make choices and fill in the blanks versus assemblies and components     (1A192)

they should leave alone because someone found out the hard way that     (1A193)

these work together."     (1A194)

the workshops and the written communique process), and     (1A198)

a 'co-sponsor' is an organization who is providing technical or funding support (e.g. supporting     (1A199)

member(s) of its technical staff to participate as a 'convener'), and/or endorsing the objective     (1A200)

Input previously posted to the wiki     (1B)

Ontologies are standard methods for the interpretation of information. An ontology covers presentation, code writing, and processing. All ontologies together could be imagined in a pyramid, where the upper, governing, ontologies are broad and nearly constant. Ontologies geared to specific types of information have more variables, serving as templates for specific types of projects. [posted by DeborahMacPherson / 2007.02.01]     (1B1)
