| Do you mind your use case being made public on the working group 
| website and documents?
We'd be very glad if you'll publish our use case.

| Section 2. Vocabulary(ies)
| ================================================================
| 
| In this section we ask you to provide some information about the 
| vocabulary or vocabularies you would like to be able to represent 
| using SKOS.
| 
| Please note:
|  -- If you have multiple vocabularies to describe, you may repeat this 
| section for each one individually or you may provide a single 
| description that encompasses all of your vocabularies.
|  -- If your use case describes a generic application of one or more 
| vocabularies and/or vocabulary mappings, you may skip this section.
|  -- If your vocabulary case contains cross-vocabulary links (between 
| the vocabularies you presented or to external vocabularies), please 
| fill in section 3!
| 
|   2.1. What is the title of the vocabulary? If you're describing 
| multiple vocabularies, please provide as many titles as you can.
SKOS representation of LOINC 
 
|   2.2. Briefly describe the general characteristics of the vocabulary, 
| e.g. scope, size...
LOINC, a Universal Standard for Identifying Laboratory Observations. Please refer to http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/loinc_main.html for further information.
 
|   2.3. In which language(s) is the vocabulary provided?
The vocabulary is provided as a data base see http://www.regenstrief.org/medinformatics/loinc/downloads .

|        In the case of partial translations, how complete are these?
We provide an almost complete translation. We excluded from the translation only the semi-structured part.

|  *2.4. Please provide below some extracts from the vocabulary. Use the 
| layout or presentation format that you would normally provide for the 
| users of the vocabulary. Please ensure that the extracts you provide 
| illustrate all of the features of the vocabulary.
- Loinc:code - the compact version of the concept for external reference
- Loinc:axis - the different dimension of the Laboratory observation: timing, scale, property measured, method used, system and component.
- Loinc:formalName - the formal name of the concept with the references to the value of the axis
- Loinc:shortName - the informal name of the concept es. HEMOGLOBIN A3/HEMOGLOBIN.TOTAL

|   2.5. Describe the structure of the vocabulary.
|        What are the main building blocks?
|        What types of relationship are used? If you can, provide 
| examples by referring to the extracts given in paragraph 2.4.

Please refer to:  http://www.clinchem.org/cgi/content/full/49/4/624?ijkey=oUwNonbF33rao&keytype=ref&siteid=clinchem 

|   2.6. Is a machine-readable representation of the vocabulary already 
| available (e.g. as an XML document)? If so, we would be grateful if 
| you could provide some example data or point us to a hyperlink.

|   2.7. Are any software applications used to create and/or maintain 
| the vocabulary?
|        Are there any features which these software applications 
| currently lack which are required by your use case?
No, the vocabulary maintenance is performed through an RDF/SKOS/OWL editor.

|   2.8. If a database application is used to store and/or manage the 
| vocabulary, how is the database structured? Illustration by means of 
| some table sample is welcome.

Standard RDF databases can be used

|   2.9. Were any published standards, textbooks or written guidelines 
| followed during the design and construction of the vocabulary?
|        Did you decide to diverge from their recommendations in any 
| way, and if so, how and why?
We made use of the "Quick Guide to Publishing a Thesaurus on the Semantic Web" (http://www.w3.org/TR/swbp-thesaurus-pubguide/) and the "SKOS Core Guide" (http://www.w3.org/TR/swbp-skos-core-guide/).

|   2.10. How are changes to the vocabulary managed?
The vocabulary maintenance is performed manually.

|   2.11. Any additional information, references and/or hyperlinks.
