Ontologies Mapping Resources

Welcome to the Pistoia Alliance Ontologies Mapping public Wiki Space

This area contains public resources for ontology consumers and providers to support practical application and mapping.

The Ontologies Mapping project was set up to create better mapping tools and services, and to establish best practices for ontology management in the Life Sciences. For our purpose, ontologies can include hierarchical relationships, taxonomies, classifications and/or vocabularies which are becoming increasingly important for support of research and development.

A general description of Ontologies Mapping can be found on the Pistoia Alliance web site as Ontologies Mapping, which is now part of the FAIR Implementation project.
