Relations between Ontologies

In the previous section, we have shown operations that relate ontologies. A classification of the degree of translatability between two ontologies is provided in FIPA Ontology Service Specification:

Like with the operations in the previous section, deciding the relationship between two ontologies often requires manual intervention. Also, one is usually interested also in the way of translating between translatable ontologies. Once the relationship is known, it can be used for deciding what ontologies to select for particular purposes.
