AsTMa* Language Family

Introduction, was published by Robert Barta at 2005-05-26

This document gives an overview over the AsTMa* language family.

To address some aspects of knowledge engineering with Topic Maps, the AsTMa* language family was created. The objective was to define a set of notations within one common concept framework and with a common mindset. This should provide all involved parties to have a migration path from topic map authoring up to transforming ontologies.

This common framework also makes it easier to provide a consistent underlying formalism and to define a coherent semantics on language constructs. In that the AsTMa* way of topic mapping will hopefully have few alignment problems between the individual sublanguages.

These sublanguages themselves are embedded within each other: the authoring notation AsTMa= is used by the constraint language AsTMa! and that, in turn, is part of AsTMa?, the querying and retrieval language. The fourth language AsTMa+ for updates is only available as idea-ware, so it cannot be discussed in great detail.

Nowadays Topic Maps appears to be very suitable for being applied in Libraries, Archives and Museums. It provides a suitable model and mechanisms for depth indexing, classification and the implementation of FRBR, CIDOC-CRM or other conceptualizations.
