General information

Name Class by attribute value

Domain (if applicable)
Alignment problem addressed A class in one ontology is equivalent to the subclass of an ontology in a second

ontology of exactly those instances which have a specified property value.

Alignment solution This pattern establishes a mapping between a class/property/property-value combination in one ontology and a class in another. This pattern is agnostic as to whether the mapping is unidirectional or bidirectional direction of the mapping can be achieved through combination of the pattern with the equivalent classes or class subsumption correspondence patterns.
Alignment workflow The scope of a class in one ontology is narrower than the scope of a class

in the other ontology. Both scopes can be matched by restricting one class to those instances having a particular value for a certain property.
