Classes

gist:Account

An agreement having a balance, as in a bank account, or credit card account, or Accounts Receivable account.

gist:Address

Subclasses
Superclasses
Disjoints

gist:Agreement

A contract or other binding agreement, usually evidenced by signature(s).

gist:Area

A measurement of two-dimensional space.

gist:AreaUnit

A unit of two-dimensional area, such as square inches or hectares.

gist:Aspect

A very general term for the characteristic of something that is being measured. E.g., property (height) or a process (cycle time) or a behavior (loyalty).

Superclasses

gist:Balance

An amount decremented or incremented by a series of transactions.

gist:BaseUnit

A primitive unit that cannot be decomposed into other units. It can be converted from one measurement system to another. The base units in gist are the seven primitive units from the System Internationale (SI): (meter, second, kilogram, ampere, kelvin, mole, candela), plus two convenience ones: each and usDollar.

Superclasses

gist:Behavior

A way of categorizing events. E.g., differentiating drilling versus cutting.

Superclasses

gist:Building

A man-made structure for dwelling or working.

Superclasses

gist:BuildingAddress

An address to which you can send mail, or that you could find in the physical world.

Superclasses

gist:BundledCatalogItem

Any combination of descriptions of things offered together. Could be a kit (several parts offered together), but could also be a product plus a warranty.

gist:CatalogItem

NOTE: In short, an unambiguous characterization of what it is that a potential buyer is paying for.

A description of a product or service to be delivered, given in a sufficient level of detail that a receiver could determine whether delivery constituted discharge of the obligation to deliver.

Superclasses

gist:Category

A concept or label used to categorize other instances informally. Things that can be thought of as types are usually Categories.

EXAMPLE: Tags used in folksonomies; formal definitions from other systems.

NOTE: Often a 'bucket' can be modeled either as an owl:Class or as a gist:Category. Use the latter if you don't care much about the formal structure of the different types, or if there is a whole hierarchy of types that are going to be managed by a group separate from the ontology developers. The formal structure may be defined elsewhere and linked to, if necessary.

Subclasses
Disjoints

gist:CoherentProductUnit

A ratio unit whos numerator and denominator reduce to 1

gist:CoherentRatioUnit

A ratio unit whos numerator and denominator reduce to 1

gist:CoherentUnit

A unit that is expressed in units that have no conversions. It may be a simple unit. It may also be a product or ratio unit that bottoms out in simple units.

EXAMPLEs: the standard unit for acceleration is meters per square second (feet per square second requires a conversion)

NOTE: coherent unit is the physics term for this, informally you might think of it as the standard unit for a given dimension.

EXAMPLEs: a simple unit: kilogram

NOTE: in principle, the CoherentUnit for a ProductUnit or RatioUnit can be inferred by recursively decomposing the products and ratios into their respective CoherentUnits, bottoming out in SimpleUnits

gist:Collection

Any identifiable grouping of instances. For instance, a jury is a collection of people.

EXAMPLES: A jury is a group of people, a financial ledger is a collection of transaction entries; a route is an (ordered) collection of segments.

Subclasses
Disjoints

gist:Commitment

An obligation (possibly unilateral).

gist:Concept

This is for wikis that are about conceptual abstractions, all meta data, but also units, obligations? intentions, goals, rights, speech acts

Superclasses

gist:ContemporaneousEvent

NOTE: All contemporaneous events eventually end and, due to the nature of the open world, we can never be sure that a contemporaneous event hasn't ended. As a result, this is really a contemporaneous and historical event.

An event that actually started after the present time. When we record an end time it ceases to be contemperaneous

gist:Content

A document, program, image, etc. (Categories are not content until they are written down.)

Subclasses
Disjoints

Superclasses

gist:ContingentEvent

An event with a probability of happening in the future, and usually dependent upon some other event or condition.

gist:ContingentObligation

An obligation that is not yet firm. There is some contingent event, the occurrence of which will cause the obligation to become firm.

NOTE: A contingent obligation might have a getter counterparty (as in the case of insurance); but it might not (as in the case of an offer).

gist:ContractTerm

A specification of some aspect of a contract.

Superclasses

gist:ControlledVocabulary

A collection of terms approved and managed by some organization or person.

gist:CountingUnit

A unit of counting, especially ?each?, but also units such as dozens.

gist:DurationUnit

A unit to measure passage of time: hours, days, years.

gist:ElectricCurrent

gist:GeneralMediaType

The real-world media type for content.

EXAMPLE: audio, still image, video, textual, physical (e.g., a statue), or performance (i.e. a play). Or it could be oil or pastel for a painting.

Superclasses

gist:GeoPoint

An individual point on the Earth's surface, identified by latitude, longitude and altitude. If altitude is missing, it is assumed to be at the Earth's surface. However, altitude is measured from sea level. these points are to the WGS-84 coordinate system using the GPS decimal lat/long

NOTE: Assume coordinate system used by Google (WGS 84 Web Mercator).

gist:GeoRegion

NOTE: A GeoRegion could be non-contiguous; e.g. the region governed by the USA is the region governed by the lower 48 states plus that of Alaska and Hawaii. Child classes in lower ontologies can make this distinction.

A bounded region (or set of regions) on the surface of the Earth.

EXAMPLES: The bounded shape that defines the region occupied by Crater Lake; the bounded area known as the contiguous USA.

NOTE: A GeoRegion has an area, but it is not itself an instance of the Area class. (Area in gist is a magnitude).

gist:GeoRoute

An ordered set of GeoPoints that defines a path from starting point to ending point.

gist:GeoSegment

A single portion of a GeoRegion which has been divided (i.e., segmented).

gist:GeoVolume

A three-dimensional space on or near the surface of the Earth, such as an oil reservoir, the body of a lake, or an airspace.

Superclasses

gist:GovernmentOrganization

EXAMPLES: The State of Washington Office of Financial Management; the Food and Drug Administration; the Scottish Parliament.

An organization established either by fiat (as a conquering army overtakes a land and declares a government) or by delegation from a fiat government, such as a state or local government or a specific agency. Differs from a corporation in that it cannot be owned.

NOTE: Establishment by a CountryGovernment may be indirect via local, regional, or national GovernmentOrganization(s) that ultimately are recognized by a CountryGovernment.

gist:GrenichInstant

By default time instants are expressed in grenich, if you need to be explicit (to calculate offset for instance)

gist:Group

A collection of People. The group may or may not be an Organization. Many organizations consist of groups of people, but that is not a defining characteristic.

gist:HistoricalEvent

gist:ID

EXAMPLES: SSN for a person; serial number for a product; employee ID.

EXAMPLE: e.g. SSN for a person, serial number for a product, employee id

gist:InformationQuantity

An amount of data, such as 6 petabytes, or 640KB.

gist:IntellectualProperty

A work, invention or concept, independent of its being expressed in text, audio, video, image, or live performance. IP can also be tacit knowledge, know-how, or skill. Also includes Brands.

NOTE: For literature this could be called the ?Work?, except that ?work? is a highly overloaded term (expenditure of energy, resource consumption, art). Often the first expression precedes our recognition of the IP, but subsequent expressions are known to be derivatives of the IP, even if they are expression-to-expression translations (or copies).

EXAMPLES: ?The Old Man and The Sea?; the Page Rank algorithm; Coca Cola

gist:Intention

Goal, desire, aspiration. This is the "teleologic" aspect of the system that indicates things are done with a purpose.

gist:LuminousIntensityUnit

The measure of brightness. The SI unit is the candela.

gist:Magnitude

NOTE: Magnitudes of the same dimensional type (i.e., duration or electric current) can be compared with a greater-than or less-than operator, but can still differ in their relationToTheWorld type. (I.e., you can compare actuals to estimates or references, so long as the dimension is the same.)

Base class for units which can be converted. The primitive units can be converted from one measurement system to another; the complex units (ratio or product) have to decompose to their primitives.

NOTE: Note the precision should be in the same type of unit as the magnitude.

Subclasses
Disjoints

gist:MassUnit

NOTE: Assuming an object is near the Earth's surface, weight and mass may be treated as equivalents.

A future commitment from one organization or person to another. Contracts are sets of obligations to do or forebear, or to indemnify or warrant.

gist:Offer

A commitment to buy or sell a described or identified part or service.

gist:OrderedCollection

Subclasses
Superclasses
Disjoints

gist:OrdinalCollection

An Ordered Collection where no item can be of the same rank as any other item. In mathematical terms, this is a ?total order?.

Superclasses

gist:OrdinalMember

A member of an Ordinal Collection. It necessarily precedes or is preceded by another Ordinal Member in the same collection. (This last condition cannot be formally stated in OWL).

Superclasses

gist:Organization

A generic organization that can be formal or informal, legal or non-legal. It can have members, or not.

EXAMPLES: Legal entities like companies; non-legal entities like clubs, committees, or departments.

NOTE: There are a plethora of different kinds of organizations that differ along many facets, including members, structure, purpose, legal vs. non-legal, etc.

gist:Percentage

NOTE: there are various ways to represent percentage: 50/100 could be represented as ?50? or ?0.5?. gist uses the latter, as it involves fewer conversions for subsequent use.

A ratio where the numerator and denominator are of the same unit of measure.

Superclasses

gist:Permission

A description of things one is permitted to do. This could be broad, such as free speech, but more often is very specific, such as the right of egress through a particular property.

gist:Person

NEGATIVE EXAMPLE: fictional characters.

gist:PhysicalEvent

NEGATIVE EXAMPLES: Excludes events that have no meaningful location, such as financial events or project milestones.

EXAMPLES: A meeting, a car accident.

An event that can be said to have occurred at some place in space.

gist:PhysicalIdentifiableItem

NOTE: You could, at least in principle, put an RFID tag on members of this class. Physical things are made of something. E.g., statues are made of bronze.

NEGATIVE EXAMPLE: A discontinuous thing like a manufacturing line cannot reasonably have an RFID attached to it, even though its parts are not the same kind of thing as the whole.

EXAMPLES: a computer, a book.

NOTE: In practice, this always means that the parts are not the same kind of thing as the whole.

gist:PhysicalSubstance

NOTE: An instance of this class must be a physical thing, and not just a categorical description. Example: an actual piece of gold, not ?gold? as a concept.

NOTE: Some things are substances at a macro level, but ultimately end up as not being divisible into the same kind of thing. E.g. sand vs. grains of sand., bacteria vs. an individual bacterium.

EXAMPLES: An amount of water, of penicillin, of sand, of gold.

gist:PlannedEvent

An event which, at the time it is created, is to occur in the future.

NOTE: A RatioMagnitude just has one decimal value.

Subclasses
Disjoints

gist:RatioUnit

A UnitOfMeasure composed of a numerator unit and a denominator unit.

NOTE: If needed, a conversion factor for a RatioUnit can be (recursively) derived from the conversion factors of the numerator and denominator units. E.g., the derived conversion factor from km/minute to meters/second is 1000/60 or 16 2/3.

EXAMPLE: Miles per hour.

gist:ReferenceValue

A measure that was neither measured nor estimated but set by fiat. For instance, a goal. There is no Measurement associated with a ReferenceValue.

Superclasses

gist:Referent

gist:ServiceSpecification

A description of something that can be done for a person or organization (which produces some form of an act).

gist:SimpleUnitOfMeasure

Each simple unit has a base unit and a conversion factor to the base. The bases are from the System International (SI). This is the number by which one multiplies a Unit by to get to base, or divides by to get from base. So the convertToBase for inch is 0.0254 to get you to the base (meter).

Subclasses
Disjoints

gist:SocialBeing

A Person or an Organization.

NOTE: Includes anything than can be party to an Agreement (e.g. Contract). But not all SocialBeing(s) can be parties to all Agreement(s). For example, minors can be beneficiaries, but perhaps not primary signatories on contracts.

Unit of measurement for expressing temperature. Per SI, the base of temperature is in Kelvin, to allow for all units to be expressed relative to a real (in this case absolute) zero.

gist:Template

Something used to make instances in its own image. In manufacturing this would be specialized as a die to make stamped parts, cookie cutters are templates for cookies, and forms are templates for data.

NOTE: Use gist:basedOn to link the instantiation of a template back to its Template.

EXAMPLE: A form. A filled-in form has the structure of the form with data entered into some or all of the fields.

gist:TemplateTask

A prototypical task of a particular type, that will, when instantiated, generate an actual (unscheduled) task.

gist:TemporalRelation

A relationship existing for a period of time.

NOTE: A temporal relation must be gist:connectedTo a minimum of two objects. For example, a temporal relation representing a period of employment is connected both to the person and to the role/position they held.

EXAMPLES: employs-Employment, hasStreetAddress-EstablishedLocation. One important context for reifying a property.

Superclasses

gist:Text

Content expressed as words and numbers (not graphics).

gist:TimeInstant

NOTE: Our identity criteria require that something refers to each Time Instant instance.

EXAMPLES: A literal instant (as in 12:01.0001 January 1, 2008), or a broader but still single point in time (January 1, 2008). In the latter case, we are declaring a time instant to be an interval with no duration (or really a duration only equal to its precision).

gist:TimeInterval

NEGATIVE EXAMPLE: ?8:00am? (with no date).

NOTE: The end should be later than the start, but this is not enforced via OWL.

NOTE: While Time Interval has a Duration, it is not itself a Duration.

EXAMPLE: Jan 1 through Jan 8, 2013.
