The Capish Ontology is a conceptual information model describing data precisely and explicitly for efficient data integration.
Within any particular knowledge domain, you will find concepts, small information units that encapsulate a particular entity, event or fact. Each of these concepts contain all relevant data to understand that particular piece of information. All concepts have unique labels providing a controlled terminology. The concepts are connected by defined relationships creating a network of information.
The Capish Ontology can be seen as a map, interpretable by both humans and computers, allowing navigation through complex domains.
The conceptual model and the actual data are maintained together so that the individual concepts and relationships function directly as the container for the actual data.
