ssiii_dev -- SSIII Ontology Development Discussion,


About ssiii_dev
English (USA)

Semantic Sea Ice Interoperability Initiative
(SSIII) is an effort to enhance the interoperability of sea ice data and to establish a network of practitioners working to enhance semantic interoperability of all Arctic data. A major SSIII activity is the development of a broad a sea ice ontology (or set of ontologies). We work initially from an operational forecasting and scientific perspective, and build from the WMO sea ice nomenclature and related classification schemes such as the sea ice "egg code". Over time, we will explore incorporating the knowledge and perspectives of Arctic residents.

This list is for technical discussion around the development of the ontology. The archives are open to the public as part of the record of ontology development, and other developers and semantic practitioners are welcome to join the list and contribute to the development of the ontology.
