Dear all,
One of the requests in this working group has been on ontologies for physical units and measures. We have developed UnitDim, an ontology of units, quantities and related topics. Guus Schreiber suggested to submit this work in this field as a candidate ontology for W3C. The work has been done in the framework of a large industrial project on e-science in The Netherlands called Virtual Lab e-Science. The ontology is quite comprehensive and considers about 200 quantities and 300 units. UnitDim and a descriptive document can be found at:
http://www.atoapps.nl/foodinformatics, Sec. News
No login is required to access that section on this web-site.
We would be pleased if you consider this ontology for reviewing and look forward to your comments and suggestions.
