Since v2.9.4

A link between two entities that are presumed to be the same, e.g. as the outcome of a probabilistic record linkage process.


The Similar schema does not extend any other schemata.


FollowTheMoney has well-defined semantics for different representations of entities, for example in a network graph or in a timeline.

  • In a network graph, entities should be represented as a vertex.
  • Similar entites have no temporal extent, i.e. they are not suitable for representation in a timeline.
