Categories for the Description of Works of Art

"CDWA is a set of guidelines for the description of art, architecture, and other cultural works. CDWA also provides a framework to which existing art information systems may be mapped, upon which new systems may be developed, or upon which data may be linked in an open environment. CDWA is mapped to the Cultural Objects Name Authority (CONA) and CIDOC CRM."

This is an ongoing project, so individual pages and lists will open as I complete them."

Extensible Observation Ontology

Yosemite Decimal System

"The Yosemite Decimal System (YDS) is a three-part system used for rating the difficulty of walks, hikes, and climbs. It is primarily used by mountaineers in the United States and Canada. The Class 5 portion of the Class scale is primarily a rock climbing classification system, while the Classes 1-3 are used mainly in hiking and trail running. Originally the system was a single-part classification system. In recent years, Grade and Protection categories were added to the system. The new categories do not apply to every climb and usage varies widely.
