The VSTO Ontology
The VSTO Ontology is the backbone of the VSTO portal, which provides data access services to both the CEDAR and MLSO archives.
Four ontologies comprise the current language used to describe VSTO and its data (with links to OWL descriptions):
- VSTO Ontology: Container ontology, including the three below.
- CEDAR Ontology: CEDAR-specific instances for the upper atmosphere domain.
- MLSO Ontology: MLSO-specific instances for the solar corona domain.
The following picture shows the VSTO ontology when opened with Protege, and superimposes a neighborhood diagram created with the Jambalaya plugin.
