Towards a Geographic Ontology Reference Model for Matching Purposes

Guillermo Nudelman HessCirano IochpeSilvana Castano

Ontologies and geographic ontologies are becoming important research and application fields for the geographic information systems (GIS) community. Although geographic ontologies (also known as spatial-temporal ontologies, geo-ontologies or geospatial ontologies) are becoming popular, a standard and complete model is still missing. The attempts for establishing standards are yet incipient, i.e., do not fulfill the actual needs. In this paper we propose a reference model for developing geographic ontologies, with the specific purpose of matching. The main idea is to extend the model for conventional, non-geographic, ontologies to make it suitable for describing the particularities of the GIS data and the relationships among them.
