TNOOZ: In early 2011, OpenTravel gave the go ahead to a new project to produce a car rental ontology, building upon components donated by Avis Budget Group.
This was constructed by Thematix, a member of the Open Travel Alliance. The OpenTravel specification can be used to more easily build software that is interoperable with disparate travel systems.
But what does this mean for the wider travel industry? How do XML schema and ontologies connect? Why does it matter? Should you care?
Who will benefit when the schema and ontology are linked?
