First proposal of formalization of relationships between standards
This is an incomplete first proposal (that I set to Dan) of the relations between resources, according almost literally with the text used by the different authors of the description of all the resources.
Some of the resources were not linked because: a) there is no description of the resource; b) the author said that there was no relationship ("none"); c) the author said nothing about relationships; d) the author said that there was only external relationships.
The attached file is in PDF format but I used IHMC Cmaptools to draw it. I have also a Cmap file (IHMC Conceptual map).
1. The domain is closed. The relationships between CMF Part B resources and external resources (XML, etc.) were not included;
2. I had to create two higher-level resources (groups of resources): a) SDMX Content-oriented guidelines; b) SDMX (meaning SDMX "project").
GLOSSARY of the Relationships between resources
classifies - A set of discrete, exhaustive and mutually exclusive observations, which can be assigned to one or more variables to be measured in the collation and/or presentation of data (Metadata Common Vocabulary).
codifies - The process of converting verbal or textual information into codes representing classes within a classification scheme, to facilitate data processing, storage or dissemination (Metadata Common Vocabulary).
compliesWith - Resource A compliesWith resource B if it is possible to map elements of resource A to elements of resource B. Compliance is not as strict as conformance.
conformsTo - An established standard to which the described resource conforms (Dublin Core).
contains - The described resource includes models for another resource (e.g. "Neuchâtel model" contains a model for "statistical units").
generalises - Applies the characteristics of a resource to a larger domain, other domains or includes other functionalities.
instantiates - To represent an abstract concept (like a class in a classification scheme) by a concrete or tangible example (like a code).
isPartOf - A related resource in which the described resource is physically or logically included (Dublin Core).
isSimilarTo - Resources are not identical (otherwise the relationship would be sameAs) but they show some similarity, for example, they have similar functionalities, or the same objectives (e.g. the exchange of data and metadata).
measures - Reading, calculating or recording a numerical value (Metadata Common Vocabulary).
seeAlso - Used to indicate a resource that might provide additional information about the described resource (rdfs:seeAlso).
