    17 Ontology draft for "Personal Data for Disaster Management" (suggested for implementation in the data model):
     17=== The 4-axes-model ===
     18
     19VITA defines four axes (aspects) for the construction of "Personal Data" relations:
     20
     21[[Image(person_data_axes.png)]]
     22
     23  * '''Appearance''' - the appearance form (of persons) the data set relates to
     24  * '''Distinction''' - assigned features for operational distinction
     25  * '''Finding''' - features to be communicated by the data set
     26  * '''Evidence''' - to describe the quality of the data
     27
     28Any compliant set of person data has to implement at least one feature for each axis.
     29
     30==== Appearance ====
     31
     32'''Appearance''' can be understood as abstract means to determine the appearance form of persons to which the data set relates (=ownership), which can be types of "Individual", "Group", "Body" or "Personal Effects" or "Relationship".
     33
     34''This axis does not describe the actually observed appearance form of a person, which indeed can be multiple at the same time.''
     35
     36==== Distinction ====
     37
     38'''Distinction''' can be understood as any features which are used to distinguish particular persons (or groups, bodies...) in operations.
     39
     40''It is important to understand that these features are always assigned, i.e. not naturally given - they cannot be observed but have to be communicated.''
     41
     42The most commonly used distinction feature for persons is their name, but also identity (=an assigned unique number or character string).
     43
     44==== Finding ====
     45
     46'''Findings''' are all other features of the person (group, body...) which are to be communicated in this data set. These features can be either of assigned, observed or derived.
     47
     48==== Evidence ====
     49
     50'''Evidence''' is a means to describe the quality of findings data. This always includes at least information on origin and time, but can also include references and links to sources or responsible persons, or information on methods of determination. This can even enclose the originating sources themselves, e.g. photograph images.

     54Ontology draft for "Personal Data for Disaster Management":
    1855
    1956  * [http://ontology.nursix.org/sahana-person.owl "OWL Source"]
     
    2158
    2259''(still under development, see the OWL source for version information)''
    23 
    24 This ontology defines four axes for the construction of "Personal Data" relations:
    25 
    26   * '''Appearance''' - forms of appearance (of persons)
    27   * '''Distinction''' - classes for operational distinction (assigned features)
    28   * '''Evidence''' - classes of data sources
    29   * '''Finding''' - classes of findings (observed or derived features)
    30 
    31 Every data set implements at least one class (aspect) from each axis (at least implicitly, e.g. in case of the appearance aspect).
