Abstract schemata are used for inheritance only and shouldn’t be used directly.



Entities using a generated schema shouldn’t be created directly by users.



Entities using a matchable schema can be used for matching and cross-referencing.



Entities using a hidden schema shouldn’t be displayed in user interfaces or created by users.


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.
  • In a timeline, buildDate or registrationDate should be used as the temporal start. deregistrationDate should be used as the temporal end.
  • Vessel entities have no temporal extent, i.e. they are not suitable for representation in a timeline.
