the WissKI project () provides an implementation of the FRBRoo 1.0.2v in OWL
(EFRBRoo, ). It also implements the extensions of Appendix 5: Modelling of
The EFRBRoo uses the latest version of the Erlangen CRM (, ) as reference
ontology, which in turn is an implementation of the CIDOC CRM v5.0.4.
Both ontologies encode class and property names as <code>_<english name>, e.g.
E2_Temporal_Entity or F1_Work.
