Thanks for kick-starting this effort.

I have cleaned up the page and introduced a set of "categories". 


Have also added a series of "maps" from the WWW 2006 Tutorial on Semantics in

These include

-          Current and Goal State Ecosystem Diagrams of all the stakeholders in
the HCLS space

-          An Activity Venn Diagram across HCLS

-          Data and Knowledge Taxonomies and Maps for different parts of the
HCLS space.


As usual, comments and feedback welcome.


As of now, I have uploaded the PNGs into the wiki as attachments. Should you
want to store them in the Yale Server and link them

to the wiki page, I will e-mail them to you as well.... (separate e-mail to
prevent cluttering of HCLS list).

I propose for the next HCLS (June 21) call we discuss what map(s) we need to
create or modify for HCLS and its different tasks (if necessary).

As Chimie pointed out, we should take care to have good overview maps of all the
participating HCLS communities, and wherever possible, how they mioght connect.
I had attempted last year to do that with an "ecosystem' view of the
Bench-to-Bedside vision with different stakeholder communities (different color
tracks). This is obviously distinct from the "data maps" uploaded on our new
site, which are closer to ontologicallyy-sound "topic maps'.

I was more concerned about how SW data can easily move between very different
org domains and uses. TimBL's app map was a nice example of "data
interoperability" and "app independence", though it takes place only in software
app OS space (calendars, email, photos, CRMs).  I attempted to move from
software apps to community functions (e.g., clincial trials, patient record

We probably should have some clear text for each map image...

I know it is a map for my current project, but it could be use for the
map in HCLS also or at least might be an inspiration. It is base on
the idea of the subway of TBL, but I used the Montreal subway map
instead of the London one.

You can see it in the Bio2RDF Blog

> It should be used for creation of a map of the Semantic Web in Health Care and
Life Science (from here on called the 'HCLS map'). The resulting illustrations
should give an overview of the different disciplines, information/knowledge
types and data source; as well as the connection between them. At this point in
time it is still unclear how detailed this map will be. The illustrations will
be used for various HCLS poster presentations and will also be put on the web.
We might also want to use the HCLS map for future journal papers. Generally, the
illustration will be of utmost importance if we want to communicate our
achievements and plans to people outside of our community.
