Ontologies and Semantics

Ontologies and Semantics are of considerable interest for Geographic Information, as approx. 80% of all data have a spatial relation. To ensure semantic interoperability and to draw accurate conclusions out of data a clear and standardized semantic description of the data is inevitable. Hence, the Working Group Geoinformation is contributing to this field in terms of Linked (open) Data and semantic modeling of spatial-temporal phenomena.
