OIL-E current version
Open Information Linking for Environmental science research infrastructures (OIL-E) is intended to provide a framework for semantic linking between different RI standards and vocabularies.
Using the archetypes of the ENVRI Reference Model to produce an upper ontology for RI specifications, OIL-E will provide a linking model for describing the overlaps between the different metadata schemes used by RIs to describe their resources, as well as the semantic mappings used to convert between schemes.
Using OIL-E, the ENVRIplus project will build a knowledge base describing the semantic landscape of environmental science RIs in Europe, capturing information about metadata schemes, ontologies, thesauri and other controlled vocabularies used by RIs and helping to navigate the semantic bottlenecks facing the establishment of an open science commons in Europe and beyond.
These are the current OIL-E ontologies:
|oil-base.owl||The base definitions needed to describe the reference model, consisting of generic concepts used in the construction of reference model archetypes. 2017/September.|
|envri-rm.owl||The set of archetypes defined by the reference model, being the object and process classes considered to be common in environmental science research infrastructures as described across the different reference model views. 2017/September.|
|rm-correspondences.owl||A proposed extension to the reference model, describing (some) correspondences between objects and processes defined in the reference model. The expectation is that once formally added to the reference model, the (revised) content of this ontology will be integrated into the next version of envri-rm.owl. 2017/September.|
