Graphical representation



General description

Name: SpeciesConditions
Submitted by: AldoGangemi
Also Known As:
Intent: This pattern aims at representing the habitat and bathymetric features that are typical for an aquatic species, in the context of a given water area.
Competency Questions:
  • what are the typical living conditions of a certain aquatic species? what are the aquatic species that live in a certain habitat/bathymetric range for that water area?
Solution description: -
Reusable OWL Building Block: (778)
Consequences: This pattern allows to represent the contextualized features of an aquatic species. For simpler representation of those features (non-contextualized to a water area), use specieshabitat.owl and speciesbathymetry.owl.
Scenarios: give me the species found below 200 metres for water area '24'; give me the species having a 'demersal' habitat in water area '24'

The SpeciesConditions Content OP locally defines the following ontology elements:

Class Habitat (owl:Class) Habitat is the biological and ecological context of a species in the area of an aquatic resource.
Habitat page
Class SpeciesConditions (owl:Class) A class that allows to represent the typical physic conditions (bathymetry, habitat) of an aquatic species for a certain water area.
SpeciesConditions page
Class AquaticSpecies (owl:Class) Aquatic species is characterized together with resources and water areas.

Mappable to fi:Species, fi:SpeciesRef, fi:SpeciesFeature, etc.

It has related axioms from FIGIS Schema that are included in the classes linked to the fi:Species class, such as fi:SpeciesRef (holding association with fi:AqResRef, which holds association with fi:WaterAreaRef).

AquaticSpecies page
Class BathymetricRange (owl:Class) This class contains the set of bathymetric ranges. Bathymetry is numeric depth information about the ranges in which an aquatic species is found.

It can be mapped to fi:Bathymetry.

Additional information

A pattern, based on situation.owl, which allow to express the typical 'conditions' (habitat, bathymetric range) of a species for a certain water area.
