General description

Name: AquaticResourceObservation
Submitted by: AldoGangemi
Also Known As:
Intent: To represent the aquatic observation data extracted from factsheet application. An aquatic observation refers to a specific year, is about an aquatic resource, and is situated in a given habitat, in which the aquatic species from the resource live. Observations can have a reporting year that is different from the observation time.


Competency Questions:
  • For an aquatic resource
  • what species
  • in what fishing areas
  • climatic zones
  • bottom types
  • depth zones
  • geo forms
  • horizontal and vertical distribution
  • and for what standardized abundance level
  • exploitation state and rate
  • have been observed? for what reference year? At what year the observation has been recorded?
Solution description: This pattern specializes the observation pattern in order to represent situations of aquatic resource features, which contain parameters, time, place, etc. A peculiar difference is the use of two temporal indexes: reference and reporting times. The first is the time, at which the situation represented occurred; the second is the time, at which the observation has been reported.
Reusable OWL Building Block: (829)
Consequences: We are able to query and reason on the data extracted from the FactSheets XML database, concerning the observation of aquatic resources. There are more data in that database, however.
Scenarios: The aquatic resource for Skipjack tuna in Northern Atlantic in 2004 (as reported in 2008) was observed with low abundance level.
