RE: What is the best way to approach the structuring of invent
> Do you have experience with structuring inventory data? No. > What is the best way to proceed? Given the above "no experience" disclaimer... The bleeding obvious: research existing related XML vocabularies (even if they do not exactly match your domain). Do you need to exchange this data with U.S. government agencies? If so, you might want to investigate NIEM: http://niem.gov/ For example, the nc:Airport element can contain multiple nc:FacilityContainsItem elements: http://www.schemacentral.com/sc/niem21/e-nc_Airport.html However, as far I can see (I have not looked very hard), this vocabulary is for "per-item" information, not "summary" information such as "number of aircraft" (at an airport). Also in NIEM, the nc:Aircraft element: http://www.schemacentral.com/sc/niem21/e-nc_Aircraft.html Not aircraft or airport equipment, but here is the Federal Real Property Council "2012 GUIDANCE FOR REAL PROPERTY INVENTORY REPORTING" (describing an XML schema): http://energy.gov/sites/prod/files/FRPP%202012%20Data%20Dictionary%20FINAL.pdf Finally: contact the U.S. FAA and ask them if they already have such a schema (unless you're working for the FAA ;-). The FAA (sorry, this is probably not news to you) already use a variety of XML vocabularies for air transport-related domains (AIXM, WXXM, FIXM).
