EXAMPLE X: prof:isTransitiveProfileOf in use

# A profile that is within a hierarchy of profiles may wish to indicate it profiles things 
# "further up the chain". To do this, prof:isTransitiveProfileOf can be used to indicate 
# anything the profile is related to by a series of one or more prof:isProfileOf properties.

# Here the New Zealand profile of the ISO addressing standard is presented in a chain 
# of profiles:

@prefix dct: <http://purl.org/dc/terms/> .
@prefix prof: <http://www.w3.org/ns/dx/prof/> .
@prefix role: <http://www.w3.org/ns/dx/prof/role/> .
@prefix rdfs: <http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#> .

  a prof:Profile ;
  rdfs:label "New Zealand Profile of ISO19160-1" ;
  rdfs:comment """This is a country-specific profile of the international 
                  addressing standard, ISO19160-1:2015 (Address)""" ;
  prof:isProfileOf <http://linked.data.gov.au/def/iso19160-1-address> .

# The ISO thing that the NZ Profile profiles is actually a Web Ontology Language
# (OWL) version of the original ISO addressing standard
  a prof:Profile ;
  rdfs:label "OWL Profile of ISO19160-1" ;
  rdfs:comment """This profile profiles both ISO19160-1 (Addressing) and also 
                  the Web Ontology Language (OWL)""" ;
  prof:isProfileOf <https://www.iso.org/standard/61710.html> , 
                   <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#> .

  a dct:Standard ;
  rdfs:label "ISO 19160-1:2015 Addressing -- Part 1: Conceptual model" .

# Now, according to the semantics of prof:isTransitiveProfileOf, using the 
# prof:isProfileOf statements above, one can infer the following additional
# statements:

  prof:isTransitiveProfileOf <http://linked.data.gov.au/def/iso19160-1-address> ,
                             <https://www.iso.org/standard/61710.html> , 
                             <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#> .

# These statements may help consumers understand which broad, well-known
# profiles data they have conforms to when they are presented only with its 
# conformance to most specialised (lowest) profile in a hierarchy which they
# may not understand.

# In this example too, a user of the profile 
# <http://linked.data.gov.au/def/iso19160-1-address-nz-profile> will also 
# understand that data conforming to it is also conformant with OWL which is not 
# in the direct hierarchy of addressing standards (iso19160-1-address-nz-profile > 
# iso19160-1-address > ISO 19160-1:2015) but is critical to know about when using
# the specialised standard as it can indicate reasoning possibilities.
