Re: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig] [rda-agrisemantics-wg] Fwd: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig] Advice on new controlled vocabulary

Hi all,
The UO was created before QUDT existed. As an OBO person, I am naturally
a proponent of the benefits of an OBO-treatment of an ontology. However,
in this particular case it may be better to use a more widely supported
semantic web ontology. The UO does have some useful axiomatization
linking units to qualities in PATO; but this could be transferred to a
bridging ontology that uses QUDT. The UO may also have some specific
terms not in QUDT, but these could be maintained as an extension

Re: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig][rda-agrisemantics-wg] Fwd: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig] Advice on new controlled vocabulary

This thread is going a lot of places, so I will keep my input short (ish). Full disclosure, I have a stake in just about everything I mention.
1) The RDA VSSIG [1] has a number of task groups [2] which may be of interest.
2) If you want to use an ontology that is not in AgroPortal or BioPortal, the hopefully straightforward solution is to add the ontology to one or both repositories, that's what they are for. I should note, BioPortal is not constrained to just biomedical ontologies. A third option is ESIP's Community Ontology Repository (COR) [3].

Dear RDA WGs,
I transfer this to this 3 groups that I know and sometimes participate in, but feel free to transfer this to other metadata/standardization/ontologies related WGs.
Dear all,

If you are somehow familiar with the use of ontologies, please consider answering this survey.
