Issue 628: Update the modelling constructs found under The Model\Use&Learn\Functional Overview

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

In the 55th joint meeting of the CIDOC CRM and SO/TC46/SC4/WG9; 48th FRBR/LRMoo SIG meeting, upon discussing issue 596, the SIG resolved to start a new issue where to discuss keeping the diagrams found under "Functional Overview" up to date with the newest official version. 

A number of figures representing modelling constructs are available through the path The Model\Use&Learn\Functional Overview of the model. They are outdated and need editing. To be brought up to date either with the latest official version that will be submitted to ISO or the latest version of the CRM. No agreement as to what the version will be (a stable vs the newest one), so the decision was to start a new issue, where to discuss (1) the new figures and (2) what version of the CRM they should correspond to. 

How to proceed: 
HW to GB to lead the discussion re the version that the new figures in Functional Overview should correspond to, and to start updating them once that has been resolved.

Dear all,

An open homework relates to updating the diagrams in the Use and Learn section to accord with CRM 7.1.1.

On the road to that goal, we have had a first pass at re-representing the extant diagrams in an updated style using .

You can find the link to this work here:


n.b.: to see the diagrams you must click the button 'open with' then you must accept many terms, then please be aware that there are some 37 tabs full of diagrams, you can browse them at the bottom of the interface.


We put forward this draft remake of the existing diagrams to get feedback from the community on readability / functionality of this new representation. The content should be the same as it was, if there is a deviation it is likely by error. 

We redid the old diagrams as it seemed like the appropriate first step before embarking on altering them to reflect the new CIDOC CRM 7.1.1 realities. As we created these diagrams we noted where the diagram would change in the new version. 

The proposal here is to solicit feedback on the representation provided here and then hopefully to plan the step forward to create the up to date diagrams based on this discussion.
