Dimension – E54

E54 Dimension

Subclass of:

Superclass of:

Scope note:

This class comprises quantifiable properties that can be measured by some calibrated means and can be approximated by values, i.e., by points or regions in a mathematical or conceptual space, such as natural or real numbers, RGB values etc.

An instance of E54 Dimension represents the empirical or theoretically derived quantity, including the precision tolerances resulting from the particular method or calculation. The identity of an instance of E54 Dimension depends on the method of its determination because each method may produce different values even when determining comparable qualities. For instance, the wingspan of a bird alive or dead is a different dimension. Thermoluninescence dating and Rehydroxylation [RHX] dating are different dimensions of temporal distance from now, even if they aim at dating the same object. The method of determination should be expressed using the property P2 has type (is type of). Note that simple terms such as “diameter” or “length” are normally insufficient to unambiguously describe a respective dimension. In contrast, “maximum linear extent” may be sufficient.

The properties of the class E54 Dimension allow for expressing the numerical approximation of the values of instances of E54 Dimension adequate to the precision of the applied method of determination. If the respective quantity belongs to a non-discrete space according to the laws of physics, such as spatial distances, it is recommended to record them as approximations by intervals or regions of indeterminacy enclosing the assumed true values. For instance, a length of 5 cm may be recorded as 4.5-5.5 cm, according to the precision of the respective observation. Note, that comparability of values described in different units depends critically on the representation as value regions.

Numerical approximations in archaic instances of E58 Measurement Unit used in historical records should be preserved. Equivalents corresponding to current knowledge should be recorded as additional instances of E54 Dimension, as appropriate.

Examples:

the calibrated C14 date for the Shroud of Turin [AD1262-1312, 1303-1384]

the horizontal diameter of the Stonehenge Sarsen Circle [33 metres] (Pryor, 2016)

the length of the sides of the Great Pyramid at Giza [230.34 metres] (Lehner and Hawass, 2017)

the duration of the time-span of the Battle of Issos/Issus on 15th November 333 B.C.E. [less than 12 hours] (Howard, 2012)

Christie’s hammer price, in British Pounds, for Vincent van Gogh's "Still Life: Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers" in London on 30th March 1987 (E97) [24.75 million GBP (British Pounds)]

the weight of the Luxor Obelisk [250 metric tons]

the vertical height of the statue of David by Michelangelo [5.17 metres]

the weight of the Great Star of Africa diamond [530.2 carats]

In First Order Logic:

  • E54(x) ⇒ E1(x)

Cette classe comprend des propriétés quantifiables pouvant être mesurées par le biais d'une opération d'étalonnage et estimées avec des valeurs, c.-à-d. par des points ou des régions dans un espace mathématique ou conceptuel, tels que les entiers naturels ou les nombres réels, les valeurs du mode colorimétrique RVB [n.d.t. rouge, vert, bleu, etc. Une instance de E54_Dimension représente la quantité empirique ou théoriquement dérivée, y compris les approximations résultant de la méthode ou du calcul spécifique. L'identité d'une instance de E54_Dimension dépend de la méthode selon laquelle elle est déterminée parce que chacune des méthodes pourrait produire des valeurs différentes même lorsque des qualités comparables sont déterminées. Par exemple, la dimension de l'envergure d'un oiseau vivant sera différente de celle d'un oiseau mort. La datation par thermoluminescence et la datation par réhydroxylation sont des dimensions différentes de distance temporelle, même si elles visent à dater le même objet. La méthode de détermination doit être exprimée à l'aide de la propriété P2_a_pour_type (est_le_type_de). Des termes simples tels que « diamètre » ou « longueur » sont généralement insuffisants pour décrire clairement une dimension alors que l'expression « étendue linéaire maximale » peut être suffisante.Les propriétés de la classe E54_Dimension permettent d'exprimer les valeurs numériques approximatives des instances de E54_Dimension convenables à la précision de la méthode de détermination utilisée. Si la quantité appartient à un espace non discret selon les lois de la physique, comme une distance spatiale, il est recommandé de l'enregistrer comme une estimation par intervalles ou régions d'indétermination couvrant les valeurs considérées vraies. Par exemple, une longueur de 5 centimètres peut être enregistrée comme 4,5-5,5 centimètres, en fonction de la précision de l'observation. La comparabilité des valeurs décrites dans différentes unités dépend significativement de la représentation comme des régions de valeurs.Les estimations numériques archaïques enregistrées comme instances de E58_Unité_de_mesure utilisées dans les documents historiques doivent être conservées. Les valeurs équivalentes correspondant aux connaissances actuelles doivent être enregistrées comme des instances supplémentaires de E54_Dimension, le cas échéant. fr CIDOC CRM version 7.1.3 0
