*** I apologize for duplicate messages ***


All,

I am trying to create a survey of available knowledge content:
ontologies, taxonomies, thesauri, vocabularies, lexicons, wherever they
exist, whatever they are about, and whether or not they are free. I'd
like to be as complete as possible. 

If you are aware of any, please forward a reference to me. I am
interested in the following format (if you also know the knowledge
representation language/standard format(s) of the content, please
provide that too):

Knowledge resource name; Type/kind; Approximate domain; URL;
Point-of-contact (and email address); Availability: for free or purchase
and whether licensing is required; KR language/standard representation
format(s)


Example:
-------
Knowledge resource name; Type/kind; Approximate fdomain; URL;
Point-of-contact (and email address); Availability: for free or purchase
and whether licensing is required; KR language/standard representation
format(s)

SUMO; ontology; upper ontology; http://ontology.teknowledge.com/; Ian
Niles (iniles@tecknowledge.com) or Adam Pease (apease@teknowledge.com);
free; KIF, Protege, DAML

I will compile these into a table and provide the summary to all the
above distribution lists. Also, if you know of other appropriate
distribution lists that this request should be forwarded to, please let
me know. If a similar request has been asked in your distribution list
recently, please let me know too (with a citation), and I apologize now
for not seeing it. 

Thanks for any information you can provide.

Best,
Leo

PS. By the way, would anyone be interested in creating a general public
repository of such knowledge sources? Or perhaps there already is such,
and I am just unaware of it?
