FORTH Activities

The 1st version of TLO (Top Level Ontology) has been presented during the 3rd TCOM. Moreover a dedicated meeting has been organized to discuss further details of it (discussion about TLO usability, use cases). TLO will enable us to develop services for common access (and substitute replication policies that are followed so far i.e. importing descriptions from WORMS to Ecoscope knowledge base). The next step (that has already been started) is to modify appropriately the current version of TLO, for the needs of factsheets generator. If the complexity of the mappings (between existing knowledge bases and TLO) is high, then as a corrective action TLO will be adjusted closer to the existing models to allow an early demonstration of it.
