Ontology driven

WissKI's data models are based on ontologies to transfer domain knowledge from the minds and processes of the projects into the research data. Even though WissKI is ontology-agnostic, it is optimized for the CIDOC CRM OWL implementation ECRM, which is maintained and kept up-to-date by Germanisches Nationalmuseum staff. Feel free to adapt your ontology corresponding to your knowledge domain with external editors and reimport at any time.

WissKI automatically detects the hierarchies and relationships between classes and properties and suggests appropriate choices to make data modeling as simple as possible.
