gist™ is our minimalist upper ontology. It is designed to have the maximum coverage of typical business ontology concepts with the fewest number of primitives and the least amount of ambiguity. Our gist™ ontology is free for you to use as you see fit.

* In the Sep 2009 and Jun 2009 versions of gist, the UOM is not included and needs to be imported into it. To make gist easier to use (i.e., to avoid having to mess with the import), as of the Oct 2009 version, gist includes a copy of the UOM ontology.

** This is a large (30″ x 40″) Visio diagram suitable for hanging, and has all the formal definitions and comments that describe each concept. If you have our e6tOWL Tool (described here), you can generate the OWL directly from this diagram; otherwise, you can usei it for documentation. Click here for a .pdf version of the full-sized diagram.
*** This is a smaller (11″ x 17″) “placemat” that includes only the names of the concepts. We find it is useful once you know what all the concepts are and you only need to remember the names.
