An OWL representation of (some of) the basic types described in ISO 19103:2005, required as primitives in other ontologies based on ISO 19100 series standards.
This vocabulary is provisional, pending finalization of ISO 19150-2.
The URI stem http://def.seegrid.csiro.au/isotc211/ is temporary. The vocabulary is expected to be ultimately published in the domain http://def.isotc211.org/
Measure of rate of change of velocity
Acceleration
measure of arc length or rotation
Angle
Measure of rate of change of angular position
AngularVelocity
Measure of 2-D extent
Area
Truth value. Most valuable in the predicate calculus, where items are either True or False, unless they are ill formed.
boolean
sequence of characters
characterString
Measure of exchange value
Currency
Temporal position expressed with precision of days
date
Temporal position expressed as a time and date
dateTime
The usually finite representation of a decimal number. It differs from the common binary Real implementation in that it can represent 1/10 (one-tenth) without error, while binary real representation can only represent powers of 1/2 (one-half) exactly. Since many currencies are decimal, these representations are preferred in dealing with such moneys. This is also true for mile markers, which are often given in decimals.
Can be thought of as an integer part followed by a fractional part given in multiples of powers of 1/10 (tenths).
decimal
Measure of spatial separation along some 1-D manifold
Distance
An exact integer value, with no fractional part.
integer
Measure of 1-D extent
Length
Name in some local context
localName
Measure of amount of substance
Mass
Scaled number

The set of numbers
Number
The common binary Real finite implementation using base 2. Since such reals can approximate any measure where absolute accuracy is not possible, this form of numeric is most often used for measures. In cases were absolute accuracy is needed, such as currencies, then a decimal representation may be preferred (assuming the currency is decimal, such as the US dollar, British pound, etc.). Where there are no subunits possible, Integer numbers may be preferred.
Can be thought of as an integer part followed by a fractional part given in multiples of powers of 1/2 (halves).
realNumber
Factor by which a representation should be magnified to match the geomstric size of the thing it represents.
Scale
Measure of temporal extent
Time
Scale for a number describing size or extent
Unit of measure
A vector is a sequence of a fixed length of Numbers. Normally, the numbers represent some measures, and thus vectors are often used where records of Numbers would be more appropriate. In geometry for example, direct positions are given by undistinguished coordinate vectors, which can be interpreted through the use of coordinate reference systems.
