Aligning geospatial ontologies logically

Research output: Journal PublicationConference articlepeer-review


Information sharing and updates have become increasingly important in the rapidly changing world. However, owing to the distributed and decentralized nature of information collection and storage, it is not easy to use information from different sources synergistically. Ontology plays as an important role in establishing formal descriptions of a domain of discourse. In geographic information science, the rapid developments of crowd-sourced geospatial databases challenge and also bring opportunities to the current geospatial information development framework. In this paper, a new semi-automatic method is proposed to align disparate geospatial ontologies, based on description logic and domain experts' knowledge.
