Abstract

An OWL ontology for all the information within the [LINK System](http://link.fsdf.org.au) which itself is within the Foundational Spatial Data Framework (FSDF) initative. This ontology contains classes for all of the major information objects that the LINK system publishes. The LINK system uses a web Content Management System to manage the data which has its own database. In order for that information to be interoperable with information in other applications, the LINK information is mapped to a series of 'upper' (generic) ontologies (data models) which information in other applications can then also be mapped to. So an 'Agency' in the LINK is mapped to an [ORG](https://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-org/) ontology 'Organisation' so other information understanding an Organisation will understand something about a LINK Agency.

Agencyc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://pid.geoscience.org.au/def/ont/ga/link#Agency

An Agency is a government organisation that produces or publishes Datasets

Datasetc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://pid.geoscience.org.au/def/ont/ga/link#Dataset

LINK Datasets are both DCAT Datasets and also PROV Entities. This means they can have metadata according to DCAT and relations to other Datasets, Agents and Activities according to PROV.

FSDF Dataset Collectionc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://pid.geoscience.org.au/def/ont/ga/link#FSDFDatasetCollection

An FSDFDatasetCollection is a collection of Output Datasets generated by an Agency and categorised with an FSDFTheme. FDSFDatasetCollections are identified in the FSDF initiative's agreement.

Object Properties

was mandated byop back to ToC or Object Property ToC

IRI: http://pid.geoscience.org.au/def/ont/ga/link#wasMandatedBy

The production of a Dataset wasMandatedBy a particular Mandate. This is equivalent to a Dataset (prov:Entity) being influence by (prov:wasInfluencedBy) a Mandate (prov:Entity) where the influence is qualified by using a prov:qualifiedInfluence indicating a prov:Influence which in turn indicates the Mandate (via prov:entity) and a role that the Mandate tool (via prov:role) which can be assumed to be something like "Mandate" which is left undefined at this point.
