Abstract

We present in this document the TSN Ontology ( Territorial Statistical Nomenclature Ontology ) to describe any Territorial Statistical Nomenclature i.e., partitions of space into territorial units (e.g. administrative, electoral, statistical units) used as a suppport to the collect of socio-economic statistics.

Territorial Statistical Nomenclature Ontology

Territorial Statistical Nomenclature Ontology (Ontology) VC Definition

This RDF ontology allows describing any Territorial Statistical Nomenclature (TSN) (i.e., partition of the territory) used as a support to socio-economic data (statistical data that describe territory in terms of population, unemployement rate, transport access, etc.).

Level (OWL Class) Definition

The Level concept describes a level of observation of the Territory defined within the Nomenclature. Several levels of observation may be defined (e.g., region or district levels)

Definition

The URI of this class is http://purl.org/net/tsn#Level


This class is a sub class of TSNComponent

LevelVersion (OWL Class) Definition In use

The LevelVersion concept describes a unique representation of a Level, stable for a period of time. This period of time is inherited from the reference period of the NomenclatureVersion the LevelVersion belongs to.

Definition

The URI of this class is http://purl.org/net/tsn#LevelVersion


This class is a sub class of TSNFeature Version

Nomenclature (OWL Class) Definition

The Nomenclature concept describes an abstract representation of the subdivisions of a territory into Levels and Territorial Units (i.e. also called 'Structure'). A Nomenclature can be seen as a hierarchy of sets of Units with at least one Level. It is designed to answer administrative, electoral and especially statistical needs.

Definition

The URI of this class is http://purl.org/net/tsn#Nomenclature


This class is a sub class of TSNComponent

NomenclatureVersion (OWL Class) Definition In use

The NomenclatureVersion concept describes a unique representation of a Nomenclature, stable for a period of time. Stability ensures that statistical data refer to the same territorial units for a certain period of time (source http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/nuts/history) (i.e., the reference period of the NomenclatureVersion).

Definition

The URI of this class is http://purl.org/net/tsn#NomenclatureVersion


This class is a sub class of Version

Territory (OWL Class) Definition

The Territory concept describes an abstract representation of a portion of geographic space that is claimed or occupied by a person or group of persons or by an institution (source http://www.oxfordbibliographies.com/view/document/obo-9780199874002/obo-9780199874002-0076.xml). For instance, the European Union is a territory, the Grenoble metropole is a territory, etc.

Definition

The URI of this class is http://purl.org/net/tsn#Territory


This class is a sub class of TSNComponent

TerritoryVersion (OWL Class) Definition In use

The TerritoryVersion concept describes a unique representation of a Territory at a specified period of time. As the boundaries of a territory may vary (e.g., fusion with another territory), it results succesives versions of it. A territory may have as many versions as it underwent modifications. For instance, the European Union of 27 and the European Union of 28 member states are two versions of the European Union territory.

TSNComponent (OWL Class) Definition In use

The TSNComponent concept is the super class of any Territorial Statistical Nomenclature components.

Definition

This class is a super class of Level Nomenclature Territory TSNFeature Unit Version

TSNFeature (OWL Class) Definition In use

The TSNFeature concept is the super class of features of a TSN (i.e., a geographic resource). The features of a TSN may be TerritoryVersion, LevelVersion and UnitVersion resources. The TSNFeature concept is a sub class of the geo:Feature concept of the OGC Geosparql ontology (please consult http://www.opengis.net/ont/geosparql#Feature for a definition of this concept)

This class is a super class of LevelVersion TerritoryVersion UnitVersion

In use

This class is used in hasGeometry

Unit (OWL Class) Definition

The Unit concept describes a piece of geographic space that belongs to one Level of a Nomenclature, and may in turn contain sub-units (or not, if the unit belongs to the lowest level of the nomenclature). Statistical observation are made on Unit.

Definition

The URI of this class is http://purl.org/net/tsn#Unit


This class is a sub class of TSNComponent

UnitVersion (OWL Class) Definition In use

The UnitVersion concept describes a unique representation of a Unit, stable for a period of time. This period of time is inherited from the reference period of the NomenclatureVersion the UnitVersion belongs to.

Definition

The URI of this class is http://purl.org/net/tsn#UnitVersion


This class is a sub class of TSNFeature Version

Version (OWL Class) Definition In use

The Version concept describes one Version of a TSNComponent, valid for a period of time. A Version resource hold all the attributs of a TSNComponent that may vary, i.e., all attributs except those that hold the identity of the resource (i.e. Identifier of the TSNComponent). The Version concept is closed to the TimeSlice concept of ontologies of fluent.
