Feature №8

The LOC or framework is characterized by a set of properties applicable to other LOCs or frameworks respectively.

Individual LOCs or frameworks may be classified in many ways, including by topic. Categories will usually be assigned values for a controlled set. InLOC needs to look across all relevant classification practice, to see what properties should be included in what kinds of category.

Atom Categories

The Atom Syndication Format introduces the following structure for classification. To quote from the Atom spec

The "atom:category" Element

The "atom:category" element conveys information about a category associated with an entry or feed. This specification assigns no meaning to the content (if any) of this element.

The "term" Attribute

The "term" attribute is a string that identifies the category to which the entry or feed belongs. Category elements MUST have a "term" attribute.

The "scheme" Attribute

The "scheme" attribute is an IRI that identifies a categorization scheme. Category elements MAY have a "scheme" attribute.

The "label" Attribute

The "label" attribute provides a human-readable label for display in end-user applications. The content of the "label" attribute is Language-Sensitive. Entities such as "&amp;" and "&lt;" represent their corresponding characters ("&" and "<", respectively), not markup. Category elements MAY have a "label" attribute.

InLOC examples

  • The eCOTOOL Competence Model inherits categorization from Atom Syndication format.

InLOC treatment

InLOC represents classification using the LOCproperty "category", which allows the complete Atom structure, plus other optional sub-element including a label for the scheme and a number that can be used for ordinal priority. (Atom's category label is for the term.)
