Locations and Spaces

This document describes some RDF vocabulary that can be used for modelling locations and spaces. The basic idea is to take a skeletal notion of locations, exits, entries etc from MOO modelling, and augment this with more precise representations of location (latlong etc) and with additional annotations (such as pointers to web content, audio annotations etc).

MOO-based vocab

Some classes and properties for representing MOO content. this is a pretty literal representation of some core machinery from the Xerox MOO core. It stops more or less at the point where MOO begins to mix code into the location descriptions.

The basic structure is organised around 'locations' and 'exits'. Each location has several exits. Each exit is an exit *from* one location *to* another. The 'from' and 'to' properties of an exit capture this.

see: old rough example,


moo:Location, moo:Exit

In addition, we use Wordnet types for all nouns. (wn:Tree, wn:Box etc...).


The following properties are used. These should be re-organised into an actual schema.

moo:oid, moo:name, moo:description, moo:content, moo:locexit, moo:from, moo:to, moo:player_msg, moo:loc_msg, moo:direction, moo:location, moo:contains, moo:ownerid.
