Getting to grips with the OpenART ontology

As part of our OpenART project, our project partners at from Acuity Unlimited have been working on an OWL ontology for describing our ‘London Art World’ dataset. This work is nearing completion and will be released in the near future.

For Paul Young (project developer) and I, ontologies are something of a learning curve and we have found that working the ontology  into a diagram has really helped. The following is our current version, still in draft and complete with some rough notes, but in the spirit of sharing I thought it would be useful to make it available using our very own York Digital Library. The diagram contains entities (classes) and object properties for the ‘London Art World’ dataset.
