OBOE: The Extensible Observation Ontology

Other names: OBOE, The Extensible Observation Ontology

OBOE is a suite of OWL-DL ontologies for modeling and representing scientific observations. The OBOE model is designed as a generic data model with a number of constructs for defining observational data. Key features of OBOE include its ability to represent a wide range of measurement types, a mechanism for specifying measurement context, and the ability to associate the type of entity (e.g., sample, organism, etc.) being measured. OBOE is being used and developed within the Semtools project for describing a wide variety of ecological data stored within the Knowledge Network for Biodiversity (KNB) as well as extensions for ontology-based data annotation and discovery within the MetaCat software infrastructure.
