Naming Conventions


External Ontologies Used

File Name Conventions

  • The Turtle file xxx.ttl contains data of the RDF graph. Usually xxx is in plural form or prepended with "The" (as "TheMatrix").

  • The instances within such an RDF graph are named by naming conventions that are specified elsewhere (to be added). All instances of a certain type have a namespace prefix in common where xxx is usually in singular form.
