Dear all:

I am happy to announce the first mature release of the Vehicle Sales  
Ontology [1], a GoodRelations-compliant [2,3] Web vocabulary for
- Cars,
- Bikes,
- Boats,
- etc.
on the Web of Data.

It can be used by car listing sites, bike or canoe rental services and  
the like.

In combination with

- http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#owns and
- http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#seeks ,

it is also possible to expose ownership ("I own a Volkswagen Golf") as  
part of online identity data or purchasing interest ("I am looking for  
a canoe").

The ontology recommends DBPedia resource URIs as predefined  
qualitative values as much as possible.

Any feedback is very welcome.

Best wishes
