This file contains the CGI Vocabulary Relation vocabulary, as defined by the IUGS Commission for Geoscience Information (CGI) Geoscience Terminology Working Group. Use National Information Standards Organization (NISO), 2005, Guidelines for the construction, format, and management of monolingual controlled vocabularies: ANSI/NISO Z39.19-2005, Bethesda Md., NISO Press, 184 pages, ISBN: 1-880124-65-3. (accessed at http://www.niso.org/standards/resources/Z39-19-2005.pdf, 6/19/06) for semantic relationships between vocabulary terms, supplemented by Allen and Ferguson (1994) temporal relationships (1 dimensional topology) that are needed to express ordering relationships between time ordinal eras in a time scale or events in an event vocabulary. Narrower term relationship is deprecated in favor of usage of broader term links for hierarchical relationships. This makes searching easier because hierarchy links are always from a narrow (child) term to a broader (parent) terms. By extension, this vocabulary includes all concepts in this conceptScheme, as well as concepts in any previous versions of the scheme.
2009-07-14. Generate SKOS encoding of vocabulary from Excel spreadsheet.
2010-02-08. SMR Clean up namespace declarations so concept URI's follow CGI URN scheme; concepts have URN, are not document fragments.
2010-11-28 SMR Replace URN identifiers with http URI identifiers constructed according to CGI URI scheme (see https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/wiki/bin/view/CGIModel/PersistentIdentifiersInGeoSciMLServices)
2012-02-07 SMR update URI to replace numeric final token with English-language string as in original URN scheme.
2012-11-24 SMR Update to 201211 version; add collection entity, check all pref labels are lower case, remove owl:NamedIndividual and Owl:Thing rdf:types.
2016-11-25 OLR regenerate SKOS-RDF file as part of migration to new vocabulary server. No change to 2012 concepts.
This file contains the 2016 SKOS-RDF version of the CGI Vocabulary Relation vocabulary. Compilation and review in MS Excel spreadsheet, converted to MS Excel for SKOS generation using SKOS_for_GA_from_XLS_2016.03.xslt
