MVF11 — Need an extension in the terminology science ontology for numeric ordering

  • Key: MVF11-11

  • Summary:

    A numeric ordering is a kind of systematic ordering, with a couple of important attributes: (1) what the origin is – zero or one, typically, and (2) whether it is from low to high or high to low. Typically numeric orderings of collections use positive integers, but there could be other kinds of ordering that use, for example, alphabetical with numerals and/or distinctions by rank, such as A.1.1.

    There may also be utility in having the notion of 'position', such as a position in an ordered list, or position of a term in a text.

    We have not captured this clearly in the ontology and should.
