Ontology project for the Finnish Transport Agency

The Finnish Transport Agency and the Finnish Terminology Centre TSK have started a shared project which aims to expand Merenkulkualan ontologia MERO (ontology for seafaring) by adding concepts related to other modes of transport.

In the first phase of the project some 1 000 concepts related to road traffic shall be added to MERO. Because MERO is based on a recently updated General Finnish ontology YSO the changes which have occurred in MERO after the update will also be checked and edited when necessary. The expanded MERO ontology will be revised with an expert group and published in the Finto service.
