Semantic Concept Ontology

The Semantic Concept Ontology is organized around similarities in meaning among the element classes and is a component of the situation-independent part of the Unconventional Conflict Ontology. These similarities are expressed by a set of semantic concepts to which the appropriate elements are linked. Figure 8.1 illustrates things that are linked by semantic concepts, in this case road and air infrastructure and vehicles. (The Semantic Concept Ontology may also be regarded as a type of thesaurus).
