Dear all,

 the first paragraph of the ‘Examples’ section of the DICOC CRM 
reference document writes:

“The diagram above shows a partial view of the CRM, representing 
reasoning about spatial information. Five of the main hierarchy branches 
are included in this view: E39 Actor, E51 Contact Point, E41 
Appellation, E53 Place, and E70 Thing. The relationships between these 
main classes and their subclasses are shown as arrows. Properties 
between classes are shown as green rectangles. A ‘shortcut’ property is 
included in this view: /P59/ /has section (is located on or within)/ 
between E53 Place and E19 Physical Object is a shortcut of the path 
through E46 Section Definition. In some cases the order of priority for 
property names has been modified in order to facilitate reading the 
diagram from left to right.”

This does not make much sense. An alternative text could be:

"The diagram above shows a partial view of the CRM, representing 
reasoning about spatial information. Five of the main hierarchy branches 
are included in this view: E39 Actor, E51 Contact Point, E41 
Appellation, E53 Place, and E70 Thing. All classes are shown as 
blue-white rectangles. Properties are shown as single arrows. In some 
cases the order of priority for property names has been modified in 
order to facilitate reading the diagram from left to right. Double 
arrows indicate IsA relations between classes and their subclasses or 
properties and their subproperties. ‘Shortcuts’ are indicated with light 
grey rectangles and their manes are written in italics, such as the 
/P59/ /has section (is located on or within)/ between E53 Place and E18 
Physical Thing, which is a shortcut of the path through E46 Section 
Definition."

Regards,

Lida
