Towntology & hydrOntology: Relationship between Urban and Hydrographic Features in the Geographic Information Domain
Research Areas
  • Artificial intelligence
The development of Ontological Engineering is a key matter in the solution of current problems related to GI access and in distributed search in different cartographic organizations. For that reason, the definition of an ontological framework in the achievement of an easy accessibility and common structure of data becomes necessary. That means to provide a certain structure of names, codes, attributes and other associated represented characteristics being responsible for defining the real world. Thus, in order to give an answer to Society, these interrelated ontological frameworks (hydrOntology and Towntology) will hopefully improve the structure of the world of classical cartography, computer-assisted GIS (Geographic Information System) and SDI (Spatial Data Infrastructure).With regard to hydrOntology, its purpose is to serve as a harmonization framework among the Spanish cartographic producers, trying to disseminate it internationally, making it available to GI producers. With this ontology we intend to provide the necessary steps to obtain a better organization and management of the hydrological features, which are spread over into the different projects, documents and directives in this field. To this information we should add a great number of catalogues, data dictionaries and so on due to the existence of different producers of GI. Another important characteristic is the different geometrical representation of the same domain (point, line, surface).
