Hi all,

As we know, some properties of an entity could be grouped or combined to 
form a more meaningful description of the entity. For example, longitude and
latitude are usually presented together to deliver the geography information 
of an entity.

This survey is to investigate which properties within the DBpedia ontology 
should be grouped to form semantic units as you may think.

To make the survey interesting, an experimental system is set up to allow 
participants to group properties when browsing entities. You are invited to
browse at least 5 entities (up to 70 ones) from DBpedia, and construct at 
least 5 groups of properties during browsing. The groups constructed by you 
will be reused in your browsing activity. It will take you 15 or 20 minutes 
to complete this survey.

Here is the homepage of the survey:


Hope it will also give you some inspiration.

Thanks in advance for your contribution!
