Overview

Introduction

This is the ontology modelling contacts and postal addresses. It also extends the original nepomuk adding the Instant Messaging account details, because an 'identity' in an IM account can be consider also a contact.

Class Details

Affiliation

Description

Aggregates three properties defined in RFC2426. Originally all three were attached directly to a person. One person could have only one title and one role within one organization. This class is intended to lift this limitation.

ContactMedium

Description

A superclass for all contact media - ways to contact an entity represented by a Contact instance.

Each value is represented by an appropriate subclass with two major exceptions TYPE=home and TYPE=work. They are to be expressed by the roles these contact media are attached to i.e. contact media with TYPE=home parameter are to be attached to the default role (nco:Contact or nco:PersonContact), whereas media with TYPE=work parameter should be attached to nco:Affiliation or nco:OrganizationContact.
