Dear all,

Some time ago, I called for a number of e-votes regarding examples for
classes and properties and the introduction of new classes and properties.
You will find the results of that vote documented below. Thank you for your
participation int the vote.

The votes that I called for this past week, will be announced soon, likely
next week.


*Context: *

Dear all,

After our last meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG (25-28 February, 2020, Athens,
Hellenic National Committee of ICOM), we are very close to releasing a new
official, community version of CIDOC CRM (Version 7) which will enable the
release of official, community encodings of the standard taking into
account the significant development work that has taken place over the past
few years.

Several issues, however, have remained open which we hope to tie up as
efficiently as possible, especially engaging e-voting wherever possible to
speed up the process. Therefore, with this mail, I am sending you a number
of forms on which I would like to solicit your vote regarding several
proposed changes.

With regards to a proposed change, the possible votes are:

Yes = accept/agree
No = do not accept/agree
Other = With other you can either introduce a caveat (e.g.: 'Yes, but there
is a typo on word x, fix it.') or you can write VETO, if you wish to stop
the proposed change from happening, in which case you should also write a
justification (e.g.: 'VETO, this change is unacceptable because it violates
the following principle...')

In order to make vote counting easier, we have organised the vote questions
into google forms. We really appreciate you taking the time to support the
standard by contributing your voice.

Every CIDOC CRM class or property should be accompanied by at least one
illustrative example. Therefore, a number of new examples were drawn up to
fill in data for properties and classes that have been introduced but not
yet provided proper examples.

*Question*

1 Miscellaneous Examples

Here a number of miscellaneous classes and properties have been bundled.
Please read the class/property scope notes and check the example and vote
if you accept/agree with the example.

CIDOC CRM v 7.0 STV and Temporal Properties Examples Vote







*Question*

*4 New property for Presence Class*

In the elaboration of the above examples, it was proposed that it may be
desirable/necessary to introduce a new property to the presence class which
allows the documentation of the relation between an instance of E93
Presence and an instance of E53 Place. Therefore, this form allows you to
vote on a) if the new property should be introduced, b) if you accept the
proposed scope note and c) if you accept the various examples.

Introduce New Property: Pxxx covered parts of (was partially covered by)

Domain: E93 Presence

Range: E53 Place

Decision: unanimously accepted (6/6)


Accept Scope Note for New Property Pxxx covered parts of (was partially
covered by)

Domain: E93 Presence

Range: E53 Place

Quantification:

Scope note: This property associates an instance of E93 Presence with an
instance of E53 Place that geometrically overlaps with the spatial
projection of the respective instance of E93 Presence. Besides others, this
property may be used to state through which places an object or an instance
of E21 Person has or was moved within a given time-span. It may also be
used to describe a partial or complete, temporary or permanent extension of
the spatial extent of some realm into a neighboring region during a known
time-span. It is a shortcut of the more fully developed path from E93
Presence through P161 has spatial projection, E53 Place, P121 overlaps with
to E53 Place.

Decision: unanimously accepted (6/6),. Edits by SS for form

New scope note (edits by Steve):

Pxxx covered parts of (was partially covered by)

Domain: E93 Presence

Range: E53 Place

Quantification:

Scope note: This property associates an instance of E93 Presence with an
instance of E53 Place that geometrically overlaps with the spatial
projection of the respective instance of E93 Presence. A use case of this
property is to state through which places an object or an instance of E21
Person has or was moved within a given time-span. It may also be used to
describe a partial or complete, temporary or permanent extension of the
spatial extent of some realm into a neighboring region during a known
time-span. It may also be used to describe a partial or complete, temporary
