We present a method for representing, recording and managing conceptualization uncertainty. We review components of uncertainty associated with semantics and metadata. We present a way of recording and visualizing uncertainty using sketching and suggest a framework for recording and managing uncertainty and associated semantics using Object-Fields. A case study is also used to demonstrate a software prototype that shows proof-of concept. We conclude by identifying future research challenges in terms of supporting dynamic exploration of uncertainty, semantics and field objects.
