    • Additionally provide display names and full syn CTRP DNs.
  • CTRP Maps
    • Post CSV files on wiki
    • Mapping is done and then reviewed by SME.
    • There are cases when the map is incomplete (narrower, etc)
    • process followed for mapping could be implemented in Lucene or Elastic Search (LexEVS or EVS API)
  • Would like to use Semantic Type (as properties) during queries.
  • Interactive MetaMap
    • possible reuse instead of something new
