dc.description.abstract Municipalities manage diversified tangible capital assets (TCAs) to provide services to citizens effectively and efficiently. Municipalities either use computer or paper-based information systems to manage these assets. Currently, there are some issues associated with the management and exchange of information generated through these information systems; heterogeneity of data format; lack of uniformity in definitions of various classes of assets; and lack of aggregation of information based on infrastructure components. To address these issues, tangible capital asset ontology (TCA_Onto) is developed using a ten step methodology. As an extension of the infrastructure product ontology (IPD-Onto), the tangible capital asset ontology represents knowledge related to tangible capital assets in the facility and infrastructure sectors. This paper presents various modalities of tangible capital asset classification at an abstract level. The ontology is used to create message templates for tangible capital asset reporting, specifically between municipalities and other agencies. The ontology verification is completed; however, ontology validation is underway and beyond the scope of this paper. en_US
