Organization Ontology

Id: org-ontology
Version: 1.0

Description:
This ontology models organizations, their personnel and their activities.

Organization of this Document

This ontology is declared in this document both in human-readable form (what you see in front of you now) and machine-readable SHOE form (which you can see from viewing the html source of this document). There are six sections to the document: Identification, Description, Extended Ontologies, Categories, Relationships, and Inferences. The Identification is the Id and Version that precedes this section. The Description briefly defines the scope of the ontology. The Extended Ontologies section lists those ontologies extended by this one. The Categories section provides a taxonomy (or ISA hierarchy). The Relationships section defines the predicates that can be used to describe instances of the categories. Finally, Inferences lists those inferences which can be made on instances that use this ontology.

This ontology is only an example. If you have a better way of representing the information contained here, we encourage you to create a SHOE version of it and make it available to the public.

Extended Ontologies

Renames

For compatibility purposes, this ontology has renamed the following objects:


Object Renamed From ================================================================ name gen.name Organization gen.Organization

Categories

The following taxonomy is the collection of categories declared in this ontology. The hierarchical form is intended to show the ISA chain. Categories in [Brackets] are not defined here but are defined in an ontology extended by this one. Elements in {Braces} are additional supercategories of the category immediately before them (signifying multiple inheritance).


Organization Business Corporation Partnership Non-Profit Government_Body Public Private --------- Department Marketing Accounting Human_Resources Employee Manager President Staff Intern Product Service Industry Agriculture Farm Ranch Construction Contractor Builder Plumbing Energy Gas Oil Finance Bank Brokerage Food Food_Distribution Food_Wholesale Restaurant Supermarket Food_Production Beverages Insurance Accident Casualty Health Life Property Real_Estate Government County State Country Information Publishing Motion_Picture Sound_Recording Broadcasting Telecommunications Information_Services Manufacture Aerospace Automotive Electronics Mining Retail Apparel Books Catalog Deparment_Store Drugs Electronics Home_Improvement Jewelry Service_Industry Accountancy Advertising Consulting Healthcare Dentist Physician Hospital Legal Transportation Airline Travel_Agency Utilities Warehousing

The above Industries are based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) and various categories used by Yahoo and Yellow Pages.

Relationships

Relationships are declared between one or more arguments. Relationship arguments are either types or are categories. If the argument is a category, any subcategory of that category is valid as well.
