Hi again Joahn, Antoine:

Thank you for your interest in our work. We hope you find it useful. Be
forgiving: being a draft there are some incomplete, and ontology is not
documented. I remain at your disposal for any clarification. Also we would
appreciate you comments and suggestions. We need to finish the ontology for
use in a project (although later we substitute SKOS-ISOTHES). I'll send it
later when finalized.

I think like you: we will wait until we tell you that the publishers can
include the changes into translations.

For personal and professional reasons I have not been involved in recent
times here. I hope to be more participative from now on.

Best Regards,
Juan

> Hi all,

> Our research group is finalizing an ontology based on ISO. The design is
> based on a careful analysis of the new standard. Following the same we
> conclude that ISO 25964-1/2 is practically impossible to map correctly with
> SKOS in the most important aspects.
>
> The goal of the ontology we are designing is to make a bridge between the
> ISO and SKOS model. In fact the model proposed by ISO lacks adequate
> semantics for drawing inferences.
>
> In my opinion we should consider several points:
>
> * First, SKOS is being so used because of its simplicity. SKOS provides
> all the basic principles of knowledge organization systems. ISO includes
> all cases of use in the design of a thesaurus starting from the most
> complex case. The current "core" of SKOS need not be modified.
>
> * Second, the data model of ISO 25964-1/2 is very focused on storage of
> thesaurus data in a relational database.
>
> * Third, instead of changing SKOS, an extension could be designed similar
> to SKOS-XL (SKOS-ISOTHES?). This extension should include (mainly) the
> compound equivalence of concepts, labeled semantic relationships and
> mappings relationships described in 25964-1/2.
>
> It would not be necessary to include a errata, as the basis of SKOS still
> based on ISO 2788/5964. Maybe, designing an SKOS extension based on ISO
> 25964-1/2 could be a solution that maintains interoperability of SKOS
> applications that have been made so far.
