Abstract: OWL-Time is an OWL-2 DL ontology of temporal concepts, for describing the temporal properties of resources in the world or described in Web pages. The ontology provides a vocabulary for expressing facts about topological (ordering) relations among instants and intervals, together with information about durations, and about temporal position including date-time information. Time positions and durations may be expressed using either the conventional (Gregorian) calendar and clock, or using another temporal reference system such as Unix-time, geologic time, or different calendars.

Specified Web Concepts:

intervalAfter , intervalBefore , intervalContains , intervalDisjoint , intervalDuring , intervalEquals , intervalFinishedBy , intervalFinishes , intervalIn , intervalMeets , intervalMetBy , intervalOverlappedBy , intervalOverlaps , intervalStartedBy , intervalStarts
