I just spoke to Barry (Smith) in Budapest on the project we are developing in Belgium on an ontology for wound images. Because of the lack of device independent imaging, ontology seemed impossible. We developed a calibration technique making it possible to use wound images (from any digital camera) anywhere in the world and perform colorimetric and planimetric analysis on it. The next step should be to develop an ontology of wound images (1% of the population has a chronic wound). A problem is that the community of wound experts are localized around the world. The question is how we could use OBO edit in a webcollaborative fashion.
Thanks already for answering. Sorry for linguistic mistakes, I am dutch speaking.
