Skills and Competency Framework, Supporting the development and adoption of the Information Management Framework (IMF) and the National Digital Twin, published by the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) in 2021, states: ‘Ontologists work to determine deeper logical structures and arrangements of information. To meet the needs of the IMF, they need to have a strong understanding of philosophical ontology (what is data about) and the real-world relationship it has. In other words, they need to be able to extract natural language and formalise it beyond logic in a way that is still sufficiently clear and rich. They collaborate to define, develop and align national ontologies and data models for the built environment that facilitate integration/alignment with different ontologies.'
