Constructing Ontologies Manually
For our discussion of the manual construction of ontologies, we follow mainly Noy and McGuinness, “Ontology Development 101: A Guide to Creating Your First Ontology.” Further references are provided in suggested reading.
We can distinguish the following main stages in the ontology development process:
1. Determine scope.
2. Consider reuse.
3. Enumerate terms.
4. Define taxonomy.
5. Define properties.
6. Define facets.
7. Define instances.
8. Check for anomalies.
Like any development process, this is in practice not linear. These steps will have to be iterated, and backtracking to earlier steps may be necessary at any point in the process. We will not further discuss this complex process management. Instead, we turn to the individual steps.
