Definition: A unit of content the user works with. This is a super class for all interpretations of a Data Object. This is separate from the Data Object in order to make the interpretation as DOs independent of the representation.See http://www.semanticdesktop.org/ontologies/2007/01/19/nie/

Looking at the High level overview of the NIE ontology (section 5 at http://www.semanticdesktop.org/ontologies/nie/), its not entirely obvious how they distinguish 'representation' from 'interpretation'. For instance 'video' and various media types are 'interpretation'. Submitted 14 April 2016
