CDWA is mapped to the Cultural Objects Name Authority (CONA) and CIDOC CRM."

An interlocking puzzle should be classified according to its interior construction, rather than its outward appearance (e.g.


" is a collaborative project dedicated to defining the intellectual concepts of pottery following the tenets of linked open data and the formulation of an ontology for representing and sharing ceramic data across disparate data systems. While the project is focused primarily on the definition of concepts within Greek black- and red-figure pottery, is extensible toward the definition of concepts in other fields of pottery studies."
