Action Points for the Following Year

The following points are based on a presentation by Alistair Miles at the 2005 Berlin Ecoinformatics meeting.

Identity

  • Ecoterm members are a community within a global information environment
  • → When choosing standards and designing systems for interoperability, should anticipate and allow for …
    • Unlimited expansion
    • Novel interaction
  • A standard mechanism for identifying things independent of context is key to scalable interoperability
  • Principles of good URI use
  • Managing URIs

Construction

  • Standards for building a ‘good’ terminological/conceptual thing …
    • Relevant because if two things constructed according to the same basic principles then likely improve interoperability
  • Two new proposed standards …
    • BS 8723
      • "Structured Vocabularies for Information Retrieval"
      • Intended to replace
        • ISO 2788-1986 Guidelines for the establishment and development of monolingual thesauri = BS 5723:1987
        • ISO 5964-1985 Guidelines for the establishment and development of multilingual thesauri = BS 6723:1985
      • Parts relevant to construction …
        • Part 2: thesauri
        • Part 3: other types of vocabulary
      • (Other parts …)
        • Part 1: glossary
        • Part 4: mapping
        • Part 5: “interoperability with applications”
    • ANSI Z39.19
