ISSUE-62: Align SSN with O&M

om-lite

Align SSN with O&M

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Semantic Sensor Network Ontology
Raised by:
Simon Cox
Opened on:
2016-05-17
Description:
The O&M conceptualization has some subtle differences to SSN, particularly in the understanding of what an 'Observation' is.
In SSN it was an information object.
In O&M it was an activity or event.
This has been teased apart in a couple of places, with PROV-O alignment proving to be a useful framework (see Compton et al. and Cox).
om-lite is an attempt at a clean OWL implementation of O&M and the patterns there could provide a basis for an Observation module in SSN.

In the sense that this issue is to resulve how ssn:Observation can become an activity, the early part of the following email thread also addressed this question.
