Intro to Ontologies - TechWiki

Intro to Ontologies - TechWiki: "Much like taxonomies or relational database schema, ontologies work to organize information. No matter what the domain or scope, an ontology is a description of a world view. That view might be limited and miniscule, or it might be global and expansive. However, unlike those alternative hierarchical views of concepts such as taxonomies, ontologies often have a linked or networked 'graph' structure. Multiple things can be related to other things, all in a potentially multi-way series of relationships."

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
