The goal is to have a general overview of connectiveness of ontologies 
one between the other. This schema doesn't and won't shows all the 
actual connections.

So all connections between these ontologies are defined in the 
ontologies themselves. And for example, its connections with external 
ontologies is defined in this file that Mike was talking about:

http://umbel.org/ontology/umbel_external_ontologies_linkage.n3


As simple as this :)

About the methods to create these linkages: multiple methods exists 
depending on the use cases and the ontologies we have to handle.

These methods are mostly semi-automatic. Sometimes fully automatics. 
With multiple steps such as evaluation of consistency and quality control.

Take care,


Fred
