Dear observable property terminology* providers and consumers,
Your responses to this questionnaire will contribute to our RDA I-ADOPT Working Group's task to document existing terminologies and annotation practices used for the naming and description of measured, observed, or modelled variables. This information will be used to build a good understanding of the various approaches; to identify overlaps, complementarity and gaps; to assess how they meet user requirements; and to reach consensus on a common interoperability framework. We would like to acknowledge your effort by mentioning your name in the final results, if you agree so (last question in the survey).
When asking for examples, we encourage you to submit terms for observable properties connected to nitrogen. This is because we want to use these examples to compare the various approaches and this is easier done when applied to similar kinds of observations. However, if you do not have any nitrogen-related terms then please submit examples which are most representative of your own domain or user community.
If you want to describe more than one terminology resource then you are kindly asked to fill in the questionnaire for each separately.
Please contact the group by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or by posting an issue on https://github.com/i-adopt/terminologies
Looking forward to your contribution.
The RDA I-ADOPT Working Group
(*) We use the term "terminology" as the overarching name for any set of fixed denotations that are used to describe something with the goal to reduce ambiguity and facilitate interoperability. A terminology can range from a simple controlled vocabulary (a simple list of terms) to a complex ontology (formal definitions of terms and their relations semantically expressed in a machine-readable way). This term may also include taxonomies, thesauri, or any other kinds of knowledge organization sources.
