histHub Ontology

Ontology for historical standard data. The histHub ontology models people, places, organisations, families, and concepts.

histHub Ontology models people, places, organisations, families, and concepts for the histHub standard database with associated concepts such as names, locations, occupations, etc. The latest version of the histHub ontology can be retrieved from https://gitlab.com/histhub/norm/histhub-ontology.

Temporal dimension 

histHub Ontology is able to capture entities in different ways in a time dimension. The existence of the entity is represented either as a state or as an event. In both cases, we model a period with a start and end date. By adding a type, it is also possible to distinguish between real and fictitious entities.
