1. Currently the OAC ontology is only available in human-readable
form, i.e., as embedded and implied in the alpha3 draft guide to oac
data model and in the examples linked from this guide
2. We appreciate that this is a lack and expect soon (by next month at
the latest) to provide a separate RDFS documenting current draft of
3. This first version of the OAC ontlogy will be a bit skimpy
especially as regards classes of annotations and annotation
constraints, but basic OAC classes such as oac:Annotation, oac:Body,
oac:Target, oac:ConstrainedTarget, .... and basic OAC predicates such
as oac:hasTarget, oac:hasBody, oac:constrains, oac:constrainedBy ....
will be there along with some initial illustrations of common
annotation and constraint classes.
4. We expect to be updating our ontology periodically over the rest of
the year with additional examples of annotation and constraint
classes, though in the long-run many of these will be defined and
documented by the communities using OAC.
As soon as we have put up the first draft of an OAC ontology document,
we will post back to oac-discuss.
