In first setting up or expanding an OSF (open semantic framework) instance, configuring for and loading data is always a major component. This Quick Start guide is meant to be a short supplement to the more detailed dataset workflows.

Step 1: Map Out Game Plan

Step 2: Enhance or Extend Ontology

Note: You may be best to use Protégé at this stage, since many of the ontology changes may be large or in bulk. See further structOntology v Protégé?

Step 3: Prepare and Load Datasets

Note: this step assumes you will be loading commON datasets; see the large datasets discussion for that alternate path

Step 4: Refine and Care and Feed Ontology

Note: You may be best to use structOntology for ongoing refinements. See further structOntology v Protégé?

  • You are encouraged to add to the metadata and altLabels (especially) for your existing ontology as you work with it. structOntology is the proper tool for this job.
