Graphical representation



General description

Name: GearWaterArea
Submitted by: AlessandroAdamou
Also Known As:
Intent: to represent gear types in terms of the water areas where they can be employed to collect aquatic resources


Competency Questions:
  • in which water areas are what gear types used?
Solution description: --
Reusable OWL Building Block: (800)
Consequences: The relation between gear types and water areas is general, i.e. not expressed in terms of logistics, legal constraints etc. Note that no statement is made as for the domain of the hasWaterArea property, as it applies to both GearType and VesselType in other patterns, and in principle could apply to other entities. Hence the domain is expressed through superclass universal restrictions on the GearType class.
Scenarios: in which water areas are 'bottom gillnets'?
