This is a work in progress, so stay tuned!  I have created a financial report ontology. The "things" used in the financial report ontology will be defined in human readable terms here. A visual representation of the "things" can be found here.

Still to come is a UML (Unified modeling language) representation and an RDF/RDFS/OWL (Semantic Web Technologies) representation.

Why am I doing this?  See here and here.

If you want to participate and learn a lot, please contact me and I will get you dialed in.
