Open Street Map (OSM) ontology

The ontology defines classes of objects appearing in OSM maps. Based on

The ontology defines classes of objects appearing on maps: roads, railways, water ways, amenities, emergency infrastructure, public transport, shops, tourist attractions, etc. This large ontology contains about 660 classes, which were identified based on the published set of OSM tags and their values. This set is continuously extended and refined to satisfy various needs and local specificities. As the Open Street Map community is rapidly growing (the number of registered users reached 500000 in 2011), the list of map features constitute a common knowledge shared among large group of committed users. The OSM ontology formalizes this knowledge and additionally provides information about how these classes of map objects are represented by combinations of map primitives (Node, Way, Area), attributed tags and their values. The taxonomy of objects specified in the OSM ontology can support various tasks: visualization, searching for POIs (Points of Interest) and route planning.

In Polish: GINA guidelines glossary

[In polish] Ontology (glossary) generated from polish translation of GINA (Global Initiative for Asthma) gudelines.

Ontologia (słownik) wygenerowana na podstawie polskiej wersji wytycznych dla leczenia astmy (GINA).

The ontology is a result of an experiment (not finished) aiming at unsupervised elicitation of candidates for ontology concepts from about 100 pages of a narrative medical document. Firstly Polish words were stemmed with Morfologik, then they were passed to state machines describing grammar rules. Obtained terms were also clustered according to contexts, in which they appeared.

Still waits for refactoring to Hidden Markov Model, which, I hope, would increase the accuracy …

Never published. Just for fun.
