Notes

  1. Work in progress. No updates (see below for updates regarding documentation options for ontologies).
  2. Workshop for teaching?  Would it be possible to have a workshop on line or at the conference regarding the representation of teaching and learning.  It’s a big topic.
  3. Survey for resource types?
    1. Could we survey the community about their needs and interests in resource types?
    2. DataCite recently updated its metadata schema https://schema.datacite.org/ More resource types added, more resource types will be added.
  4. Documentation.  Mike showed ReadTheDocs being used for documenting the Organization Ontology.  Uses a simple Markup language, RestructuredText, developed by the python community, but now used by millions of developers.  Addresses the following shortcomings of Confluence:  Github based version control, all done with markup language, automated production of pages possible, supports footnotes, sidebars, citations.  Search is focused on the documentation, not global across a large wiki as in Confluence.  Brian shared http://dgarijo.github.io/Widoco/doc/gallery/ for ontology documentation, which automates the production of pages from OWL files.
  5. The group discussed the need to represent locations in the VIVO ontologies -- as in “this event was held in Paris” or “The University of Florida is in Gainesville.”  What is a location in BFO?  In GAZ?  How do we represent latitude/longitude?
    1. Mike is on the ROR curation group. He can ask about plans for location data.
    2. Wikidata has lat/long data.  Associating an entity with a Qnumber would allow harvesting.  https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q501758 is the Wikidata entry for the University of Florida, a well-curated record.
