The Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) describes the domain model of business and finance. The ontologies are well defined, but there is little in the way of visualisations of the models to aid consumers and developers. In this post I provide visualisations of the Person and Organizations FIBO domain models to aid evaluation and adoption into a project.

In a previous blog post I discussed ontology engineering with respect to enterprise technical architecture and the use of well understood design patterns in aligning semantic technologies with the traditional. One of the common questions I hear in the semantic technology communities is why continue to create new ontologies and not re-use public domain ontologies and upper ontologies to model most domains. I will attempt to answer this, again from a practical and enterprise technical architecture viewpoint.

Describing some of the engineering behind the Press Association semantic publishing stack and how the ontology design and the software design work together in unison.

The SNaP news ontology includes a basic Stuff domain model for modeling real world entities so they can be annotated against news assets (stories etc). Now there are many cases where you might want to use an existing specialised rich domain model to semantically annotate your news assets with, using an ontology that your consumers already may understand.

The Press.Net (SNaP) news ontology is a lightweight set of 5 smaller ontologies that combine to provide a model for representing news assets in RDF, classified and annotated with real world concepts. I have put together some simple examples to demonstrate their use.

Some brief notes on pragmatic ontology modelling. It is borne out of practical experience of building ontologies for real world semantic publishing applications. It borrows design principles from good traditional software architecture techniques applying them to ontology design.
