The published ontology describes the NeXus standard, it does not define the standard. This ontology extracts information about NeXus classes and fields from NeXus nxdl definition files on the NeXus GitHub site. This project was undertaken under ExPaNDS WP3.2. The ontology is designed to fulfil several purposes. First, it creates unique identifiers for each of the NeXus fields which would normally exist only within the namespaces of the defining NeXus classes. This is the primary goal and provides PIDs for annotation and tagging. The second purpose is to allow, via separate ontologies, NeXus fields and classes to be mapped onto equivalent or related terms defined elsewhere. Finally, we hope that this ontology, when used with a tool such as Protege, will provide a useful 'NeXus Explorer' tool to gain a quick overview of NeXus with links to official NeXus documentation.
