On this topic, I would encourage people to take at look at the VoaF
('Vocabulary of a Friend) <http://bit.ly/ppQPUc> and Linked Open
Vocabularies <http://bit.ly/q7PIEn> work happening in Europe. For
example, François Scharffe demoed this at RPI this afternoon:

http://labs.mondeca.com/dataset/lov/index.html

My point in highlighting this tool is to not how it leverages VoaF to
show the interrelationships of vocabularies. As we noted earlier
today, one of the problems to be tackled by this WG is creating best
practices that help stakeholders e.g. choose vocabularies (among other
things).

> Dear all

> Regarding the Task Force Standard Vocabularies, I would like to propose the
> creation of a meta-standard just for  describing  public-gov vocabularies.
> Currently, most vocabularies exist in the goverment domain in pure form
> without any additional information, e.g. authorship information, such as
> provided by Dublin Core for text documents, VOID for data sets, etc. This
> burden makes it difficult for goverments e.g. to identify, find and apply
> candidate vocabularies for their resuse effectively and efficiently.
>
> Once the meta-standard is created, the next stpe would be to populate it
> with domain specific public-gov vocabularies and store them in central
> metadata registry.
>
> This approach is similar to The Ontology Metadata Vocabulary [1,2] -OMV- for
> the description of ontologies, which reflects what the ontology is about,
> their developers, degree of consensus, etc.
>
> I think that there are many lessons learnt from the Ontology Engineering
> community that could help us to speed up the process of creating, managing
> and using vocabularies.
