Ontology Definition Metamodel (ODM)

This specification represents the foundation for an extremely important set of enabling capabilities for Model Driven Architecture (MDA) based software engineering, namely the formal grounding for representation, management, interoperability, and application of business semantics. ODM is applicable to knowledge representation, conceptual modeling, formal taxonomy development and ontology definition, and enables the use of a variety of enterprise models as starting points for ontology development through mappings to UML and MOF.1
