Smart environments integrates various types of technologies, including cloud computing, fog computing, and the IoT paradigm. In such environments, it is essential to organize and manage efficiently the broad and complex set of heterogeneous resources. For this reason, resources classification and categorization becomes a vital issue in the control system. In this paper we make an exhaustive literature survey about the various computing systems and architectures which defines any type of ontology in the context of smart environments, considering both, authors that explicitly propose resources categorization and authors that implicitly propose some resources classification as part of their system architecture. As part of this research survey, we have built a table that summarizes all research works considered, and which provides a compact and graphical snapshot of the current classification trends. The goal and primary motivation of this literature survey has been to understand the current state of the art and identify the gaps between the different computing paradigms involved in smart environment scenarios. As a result, we have found that it is essential to consider together several computing paradigms and technologies, and that there is not, yet, any research work that integrates a merged resources classification, taxonomy or ontology required in such heterogeneous scenarios.
