Re: Finding ontology

Hi Pierre,

I've seen the same kind of questions as yours repeated again and again, 
and the same kind of answers repeated as well.
I tried to gather those answers into a document [1] on a wiki where I 
put together all the methods I could find for finding the right 
vocabularies or terms.

Eventually, I hope that I'll be able to define a process or methodology 
for helping data publishers to get to the terms they need. I also hope 
this may look interesting to others and that they will give me a hand to 
complete the little survey I started.
