General description

Name: VerticalDistribution
Submitted by: AldoGangemi, EvaBlomqvist
Also Known As:
Intent: The intent of the pattern is to be able to represent vertical distribution for aquatic resources.
Competency Questions:
  • What resource has what vertical distribution?
Solution description: ...
Reusable OWL Building Block: (727)
Consequences: This pattern only allows to query what vertical distribution is typical of an aquatic resource. Whereas such values can be subject to observation, another pattern based on the generic 'observation' pattern should be used.

The vertical distribution is intended to have a fixed set of values (to be defined as nominals) but this is not explicit in the pattern.

Scenarios: Give me the resource observations where the vertical distribution is 'Pelagic'
