[edit]
This document specifies Practices used during the design of the ontology developed for the semantic wiki supporting Best Practices. These practices do not necessarily apply to ontologies fielded in technical environments other than semantic wikis. Principal objectives of the ontology are
  1. conventions to name classes & properties attached to wiki pages & subobjects
  2. a Topic Map-syntax widget for direct entry of page subobjects & properties
  3. a structured query syntax easier for users to learn and use
  4. an "annotation desktop" for semantic scientific & socio-economic ontologies

This material is primarily directed at web developers associated with Best Practices and at any others who use the Wiki Topic Maps Ontology. Readers of this document are expected to be familiar with Semantic MediaWiki and its suites of software extensions.

[edit] General "Rules of Thumb" Advice


  • (Stated)[ABSTRACT GRAMMAR CLASSES] Establish as grammatical abstract classes: Noun,Verb, Adjective, Adverb, Adjective, Participle, Plural and Preposition.
  • (Stated)[ABSTRACT TOPIC CLASSES] Establish as topical abstract classes: Story,What, When, Where, Who, Which, Why, How and How much.
  • (Debated)[ATTRIBUTE NAMESPACE] Rename the SMW Property namespace to Attribute in order to preserve "property" as a prime legal/economic term for a "type of topic".
  • (Discussing)[TEXT PROPERTIES] Identify the names of all text properties by (1) a "period" followed by (2) a lower case letter. The property name may have a suffix to indicate language or facets of the property's value.
  • (Agreed)[PROPERTY FACETS] Identify the names of facets by (1) a hash character followed by (2) a lower case letter. Include facets for language, numeric precision, variance and statistical measures.
  • (Tabled)[OBJECT PROPERTIES] Identify the names of all object properties by a Capital Letter and do not follow any camel-casing convention.
  • (Voting)[NUMERIC PROPERTIES] Support RDF-style numeric property names, e.g., "1" and "2", when used as suffixes to either a text or an object property name.
  • (Withdrawn)[PROPERTY NAMES] Disallow from property names all special characters other than en-dash and hash characters.
  • (Discussing)[ISO PROPERTIES] Support all International Standards Organization (ISO) codes for currencies & languages as property names for monetary and text/string data.
  • (Presumed)[SI PROPERTIES] Support all Systeme Internationale (SI) abbreviations for types of numeric quantities as property names.
  • (Finalized)[WIKI NAMESPACES] Require a wiki page's namespaces to be the primary mechanism for communicating the type of topic that the page represents.
  • (Created)[NAMESPACE CONTENTS] Any namespace (except Main) may contain any of the SKOS ontology's metatypes: (a) concept (a type of topic) (b) collection (a type of bag) and (c) schema (a type of bundle).
  • (Created)[WIKI PAGENAMES] Assume that the name of a page in a wiki is the topic of the page, and a topic of the wiki.
  • (Re-stated)[WIKI REDIRECTS] Consider REDIRECTs to be alternate names, or aliases, in the Topic Map sense.
  • (Questioned)[DUBLIN CORE] Adopt & tightly integrate all Dublin Core properties for general provenance purposes.
  • (Re-questioned)[XML SCHEMA] Support all XML Schema datatypes as property names for low-level data transmissions or queries.
  • (Re-proposed)[RDF] Support all RDF properties and classes for RDF-level data transmissions and RDF-level queries.
  • (Re-agreed)[RDF SCHEMA] Support all RDF Schema properties and classes for data exchanges and queries.
  • (Stated)[STRUCTURED PAGENAMES] The root of structured pagenames within a namespace should be the page's Publisher Creator or Author.
