General description

Name: TimeIndexedSituation
Submitted by: AldoGangemi
Also Known As:
Intent: To represent time indexed situations.


Competency Questions:
  • At what time did a certain situation occur?
  • What situations occurred at a certain time?
Solution description: This pattern adds a time specification (the Time interval pattern) to the Situation pattern, in order to provide a handy solution to many cases.
Reusable OWL Building Block: (1010)
Consequences: We can represent situations that have an explicit time parameter.

In principle, this can be done already with the Situation pattern, but this provides a handy composition with the TimeInterval pattern.

Scenarios: Mustafa's address in 2005 was in Brussels
