The euBusinessGraph (`ebg:`) ontology represents companies, type/status/economic classification, addresses, identifiers, company officers (e.g., directors and CEOs), and dataset offerings.
It uses `schema:domainIncludes/rangeIncludes` (which are polymorphic) to describe which properties are applicable to a class,
rather than `rdfs:domain/range` (which are monomorphic) to prescribe what classes must be applied to each node using a property.
We find that this enables more flexible reuse and combination of different ontologies.
We reuse the following ontologies and nomenclatures, and extend them where appropriate with classes and properties:
- W3C Org, W3C RegOrg (basic company data),
- W3C Time (officer membership),
- W3C Locn (addresses),
- schema.org (domain/rangeIncludes and various properties)
- DBpedia ontology (jurisdiction)
- NGEO and Spatial (NUTS administrative divisions)
- ADMS (identifiers),
- FOAF, SIOC (blog posts),
- RAMON, SKOS (NACE economic classifications and various nomenclatures),
- VOID (dataset descriptions).
