PMD core ontology: class Header Field

Hi all,
in the core ontology, I found the class „Header Field“ (bundling the semantics for a specific column in a table inside a (multidimensional) blob), which sounds like a way to store tables in the ontology. Even though it is described how to specify columns, I don’t get the point of how to instantiate rows of data instances using this table schema. Does anyone understand the concept and can help me?

Hi,
The class Headerfield is for storing information about the collumn itself in the a-box not about storing the actual data of the row.
Since such data series often contain huge amounts of data and the actual row data is still stored in the corresponding JSON file itself, the idea is to only store searchable information about the collumn.
