Callimachus concepts are used to categorize objects or events.  A concept consists of one primary label which is used to construct its URI, as well as any number of alternate labels. These alternate labels are used to assist in concept lookup.

Concepts are primary used to to clarify the usage and meaning of something. In an application they are used to populate controls such as dropdowns, checkboxes or radio buttons.

Note: A concept is a common attribute of an object, not a set of objects, which would instead be modeled as a class.

To create a concept, select Concept using the create menu from the folder you wish to store the concept in. You will be presented with a form.


The set of US state names or a list of the Canadian provinces are examples of concepts.
