[bioontology-support] Explanation of ID in NCIT ontology

If the ontology has a URL id for terms then we use it. All OWL ontologies
(such as NCIT) do. If the ontology does not have a URL for terms then we
mint them.

Subject: [bioontology-support] Explanation of ID in NCIT ontology


In most of the ontologies that I browse the ID is something like this:
<> <XXX>/<yyy>

where XXX is the name of the ontology and yyy the identifier of the term
in the ontology

For NCIT, the ID is of the kind
<<yyy> <yyy>

Where is it documented how to interpret this ID?
Thank you in advance for your help.
