NCGIA Research - GeoSemantic Web

The vision for the Semantic Web is to enhance information retrieval by incorporating semantics and exploiting the semantics during the search process. Such  developments need special attention from the geospatial perspective so that geospatial meanings are captured appropriately. The Geospatial Semantic Web research involves developing multiple spatial and terminological ontologies, each with a formal semantics;  representing those semantics for both machine processing and human understanding; and enhancing geospatial queries based on ontologies.
