Given that it’s not a change to the domain or range, only to the scope of the sorts of things that the range can then be applied to, it seems easiest and well justified to change the scope note to allow further types.

 

Is there scope for other physical (non-solid, non-liquid) phenomena to be included as well?  The multispectral photograph’s production used_object_of_type <blue light> ?

Subject: [Crm-sig] Broaden scope of P125

 

Hello,

 

Conservators use a range of materials for their treatments. The

treatments can be modelled as "E7 Activity" and the "P125 used object of

type" describes things used during the activity. The scope note only

refers to objects (i.e. solid human-made things). It would be useful if

the scope of this property could be broader to also include non-solid

things such as fluids (e.g. the use of a type of solvent for cleaning).

Unless this can be described in another way I suggest to change the

scope note of P125 from:

 

This property defines the kind of objects used in an E7 Activity, when

the specific instance is either unknown or not of interest, such as use

of "a hammer".

 

to:

 

This property defines the kind of physical things (solid and non-solid)

used in an E7 Activity, when the specific instance is either unknown or

not of interest, such as use of "a hammer" or the use of "toluene".

 

The alternative would be to create a new property in CRMsci to include

types of Material Substantial, but given that the range of P125 is only

E55 Type, the nature of the thing can be easily retrieved and I do not

think a new property is necessary.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

All the best,

 

Thanasis
