Old and current implementation

As of 2017-03-08, the old and current links between classes: FeatureOfInterest, xxxProperty, {Actuator/Sensor}, {Actuation/Observation} are represented in the following figure:

Discussions

Maxime: the naming should be consistent with the link between Actuation and Actuator

Currently proposed options

  1. sosa:madeObservation/nothing
  2. sosa:madeObservation/sosa:madeBySensor (https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sdw-wg/2017Feb/0426.html)
  3. sosa:madeObservation/sosa:observationMadeBy (https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sdw-wg/2017Feb/0426.html)
  4. just one pair: sosa:generatedBy/sosa:isGeneratedBy
  5. they can be sub-properties of prov:wasAssociateFor / prov:wasAssociatedWith (https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sdw-wg/2017Feb/0414.html)
  6. ...

Focus on Option 3

- Maxime: I would be happy with consistent like in the figure below, although it may require that some of the old ssn terms are renamed:
