Issue 347: Dimension and Data sets

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

Posted by Martin on 21/9/2017

Dear All,

In connection with Issue 293, I propose to consider defining the relation between

Dimension and Data Set in CRMDig. We may consider basically any CSV file an instance of Dimension, i.e., a point in a multidimensional mathematical space in which each mathematical dimension has a real world meaning in terms of an observable property. Classical examples are digital images with RGB values on a 10M 2D pixel matrix, i.e.,  3 millions dimensions in one measurement result, taken in one process.

Then Dimension could be IsA Data Set.

This can help harmonizing the assigment of Dimensions following a data evaluation process with the general result of data evaluation.



In the 39th joined meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9 and the 32nd FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, the sig discussed about dimension proposed  to be  revised  the Dimension considering that  data evaluation creates an approximation of a dimension. Also it is decided  to be proposed better model of how dimensions related to values from measurements and from evalution. and  assigned to  MD , Steve, find a conservation person, and  Thanasis should think about this.
