Positive impacts associated with urban housing/home ownership programs motivate us to study this topic in relation to ontologies. This paper reviews ontological dependence and presents early work underway in the DataONE Preservation and Metadata Working Group (PAMWG) to collectively leverage existing metadata schemes and ontologies. The paper introduces a high-level set of functional requirements and the stackoverflow model that may be used detect highly rated metadata or ontological properties to from a loose cannon for describing scientific data. The long term goal is to establish community identity and rhythm supporting a sustainable ontology/metadata driven workflow.
