Ontology of units of Measure (OM)
The Ontology of units of Measure and related concepts (OM) models concepts and relations important to scientific research. It has a strong focus on units and quantities, measurements, and dimensions.

A measure combines a number to a unit of measure or an interval or ratio scale. For example, "3 m" is a measure.

Measurement scales are concepts used for the expression of quantities. Four types of measurement scales are: nominal scales, ordinal scales, interval scales and ratio scales. The latter two scales are also called cardinal scales. An example of a scale is the Celsius scale, a temperature scale.

A measurement scale category is an element of a nominal or ordinal scale, for example, the category number 10 of the Beaufort scale, indicating storm.

A phenomenon is the qualitative object (e.g., food, star, molecule) that has quantifiable (standardised) aspects (e.g, length, mass, time).

A point is an element of an interval scale or a ratio scale, for example, 273.16 on the Kelvin scale indicates the triple point of water thermodynamic temperature.
point
A prefix is a name that precedes a basic unit of measure to indicate a decimal multiple or fraction of the unit. Each prefix has a unique symbol that is prepended to the unit symbol. For example, an electric current of 0.000 000 001 ampere is written by using the SI-prefix nano as 1 nanoampere or 1 nA.
prefix
A quantity is a representation of a quantifiable (standardised) aspect (such as length, mass, and time) of a phenomenon (e.g., a star, food, or a molecule). Quantities are classified according to similarity in (implicit) metrological aspect, e.g. the length of my speedboat and the length of my racing car are classified as length.

In order to achieve a coherent, interdependent set of units of measure in the wide variety of units that exist, units are organised in systems of units. A system of units is based on a set of units chosen by convention to be the system’s base units, units that are considered to be mutually independent (i.e., can’t be expressed in terms of each other).

A unit of measure is a definite magnitude of a quantity, defined and adopted by convention and/or by law. It is used as a standard for measurement of the same quantity, where any other value of the quantity can be expressed as a simple multiple of the unit of measure. For example, length is a quantity; the metre is a unit of length that represents a definite predetermined length. When we say 10 metre (or 10 m), we actually mean 10 times the definite predetermined length called "metre".
