You mentioned the possible use of thence registry, based on ISO 11179 (data element definition) for ontologies.
>Its partitioned into 'Contexts' so its conceivable that one could be set up for Ontology Working Group' project, if its a close enough fit...the idea of independently entering concepts and allowing them to be classified into multiple classification schemes is easily supported - with a few > additional business rules to support the ONTAC Context it might be an easy way to get going?
This may be useful, but I’d like to know something about your top level concepts that categorize and organize the data elements.
I know that Frank Olken has discussed how ontologies can support ISO/IEC 11179 registries and listed the following reasons:
The third item, registering ontologies, is just what you propose.
It has always seemed to me, however, that defining elements in relative isolation hides the really hard aspect of ontology as an integrated model. Thus the approach of building up an ontology from data elements semantics may be deceptively simple for a while and then run into a steep incline.
