The BBC has published a new ontology which they are calling, simply, the Sport Ontology: “The Sport Ontology is a simple lightweight ontology for publishing data about competitive sports events.” The ontology should allow data to be published about the structure of sports tournaments, competition, disciplines that an event involves, awards associated with competitions, and much more.
According to the release, “Whilst it originates in a specific BBC use case, the Sport Ontology should be applicable to a wide range of competitive sporting events data publishing use cases. Care has been taken to try and ensure interoperability with more general ontologies in use. In particular it draws heavily upon the events ontology.”
