Ontologies

An ontology is a precise specification of a conceptual understanding of a domain of interest. Their building blocks, namely objects (entities occurring in the domain), classes (groups of objects) and roles (relationships between objects and classes), can be expressed either formally or informally through both graphical and syntactic formalisms.
