Capturing data in a step-by-step manner is generally completed using surveys that maintain some flow between questions to capture data from a large number of respondents in a consistent manner. In other words capturing data using surveys is a form of data collection that imposes a specific process to collect data. In this paper we present the benefit of utilizing the mid-level Data Collection Ontology (DCO) to construct a survey ontology that is domain independent and compare to an existing Survey Ontology (Fox M.S., 2016) implementation.
