Upper-level ontologies provide the basis for domain ontologies enabling reuse by providing consistent and common terms, as well as an organizational structure. However, upper-level ontologies only provide very high-level terms which requires significant work before a domain expert can define any domain terminology. Mid-level ontologies build off of upper-level ontologies by providing terms and axioms that are common across many domain-level ontologies to help produce ontologies faster and easier. We present the initial design for a data collection mid-level ontology that provides basic terminology, data types, and axioms to produce domain-level ontologies capable of capturing relations and distributions of data.
