Open Information Linking for Environmental science research infrastructures (OIL-E)

Open Information Linking for Environmental science research infrastructures (OIL-E) is intended to provide a framework for semantic linking between different RI standards and vocabularies.

Using the archetypes of the ENVRI Reference Model to produce an upper ontology for RI specifications, OIL-E will provide a linking model for describing the overlaps between the different metadata schemes used by RIs to describe their resources, as well as the semantic mappings used to convert between schemes.

Using OIL-E, the ENVRIplus project will build a knowledge base describing the semantic landscape of environmental science RIs in Europe, capturing information about metadata schemes, ontologies, thesauri and other controlled vocabularies used by RIs and helping to navigate the semantic bottlenecks facing the establishment of an open science commons in Europe and beyond.

These are the current OIL-E ontologies:

oil-base.owl  Base definitions needed to describe the reference model, consisting of generic concepts used in the construction of reference model archetypes. 2017/September.

envri-rm.owl  The set of archetypes defined by the reference model, being the object and process classes considered to be common in environmental science research infrastructures as described across the different reference model views. 2017/September.

rm-correspondences.owl  A proposed extension to the reference model, describing (some) correspondences between objects and processes defined in the reference model. The expectation is that once formally added to the reference model, the (revised) content of this ontology will be integrated into the next version of rm-archetypes. 2017/September.

Older OIL-E ontologies (deprecated)

Links are provided for a previous iteration of OIL-E ontologies, for the purposes of backward compatibility and migration.

rm-core.owl  Base definitions needed to describe the reference model, consisting of generic concepts used in the construction of reference model archetypes. 2017/March.

rm-archetypes.owl  The set of archetypes defined by the reference model, being the object and process classes considered to be common in environmental science research infrastructures as described across the different reference model views. 2017/March.

Open distributed processing (ODP)

This is the core ontology we developed in the ENVRI project. It is based on the ODP standards.

Odp.1.owl  The version one was released in 2013/April by the UvA team.

Odp.2.owl  The version two contains modifications from partners in Austria, and it was released in 2013/July.

Odp.3.owl  The version three contains modifications from partners in Austria, and it was released in 2013/August.

Odp.4.owl  The version four contains modifications from partners in Austria, and it was released in 2014/January.

Odp.5.owl  some small updates.

Odp.6.owl  Move to the new name space www.oil-e.net/ontology, 2014/August.

ENVRI ontology

Envri_rm.1.owl The version one was released 2013/April.

Envri_rm.2.owl The version two was released 2013/July.

Envri_rm.3.owl The version two was released 2013/August.

Envri_rm.4.owl The version two was released 2013/January.

Envri_rm.5.owl some small updates.

Envri_rm.6.owl Move to the new name space www.oil-e.net/ontology, 2014/August.

Workflow bus

Workflow bus ontology was developed in 2005. It was used as communication schema for the Java Agent framework.

NEtWork aware QoS Workflow planner (NEWQoSPlanner)

QoS aware abstract workflow (V1, and V2)is the abstract workflow schema used in the NEWQoSPlanner.

Linking ontology between abstract workflow and the service description (V1, V2)

Resource description schema

Content(Ontology for the data in CineGrid)

Service (CineGrid description language, V1 include NSI, and V2 includes Openflow)

Device and Netowrk()

The ontology on this page are under development. Any comments and feedback are welcome (zmzhao@ieee.org) 2013, UvA.
