MMI Device Ontology: A Community Development Project

Description

MMI has begun development of an ontology aimed at classifying sensor/device types, and possibly extending into more detailed sensor terminology. This project is being developed by interested members of the marine science and data community. See the project web site for details.

History

In 2006 MMI worked with volunteers to start developing a sensors and platforms ontology, using many other reference vocabularies but starting with a blank ontology. The sensors work planned at that time was delayed, in favor of an effort to develop a platforms ontology. Now, following the ACT and MMI sensor workshops, MMI is finally starting up the sensor ontology effort.
