Ø  Some of the local restrictions on sosa:Observation are:

Where are these axioms? Not in sosa.ttl. I guess you are referring to the changes you propose/discuss in the other mails?


Ø  1. when we will talk about sosa:resultTime, we should not forget to also talk about this property ssn:observationResultTime.

If ssn:observationResultTime is a sub-property of sosa:resultTime then anything that is said about sosa:resultTime. Then there will be the additional axioms related to sosa:resultTime only (if there are none, then we don’t need sosa:resultTime).


Ø  2. what is the proposal for ssn:observationSamplingTime in ACTION-286?

Is ssn:observationSamplingTime sub-property of sosa:phenomenonTime ?
Or is it related to sampling in the snese used in SOSA?

The old SSNX usage of ‘sampling’ was inconsistent with sosa Sampling.

Subject: About MinCardinality 0 on Observation

Dear all,

Some of the local restrictions on sosa:Observation are:

ObjectMinCardinality( 0 ssn:observationResultTime )

ObjectMinCardinality( 0 ssn:observationSamplingTime )

ObjectMinCardinality( 0 ssn:qualityOfObservation )


If I understood correctly, those min cardinality 0 are meant to document the fact that these properties "should" be attached to instances of sosa:Observation. I will not debate on this and why we do not define domains for these properties whose URIs even contain the string "observation".

Just:

1. when we will talk about sosa:resultTime, we should not forget to also talk about this property ssn:observationResultTime.

2. what is the proposal for ssn:observationSamplingTime in ACTION-286?

3. there is ssn:qualityOfObservation. How is it used? Could we also define a ssn:simpleQualityOfObservation  that is a datatype property?

Best,
Maxime
