Abstract:

 

In this paper, we provide a web-based tool for building geographic ontologies. This work draws from a previously presented framework for building geographic ontologies utilizing Natural Language Understanding Semantics. Several special characteristics of geographic concepts have been tackled therein making it an appropriate framework for providing a generic ontology of geographic ontology design. The implementation process consists of two steps. The first step is to determine the generic schema of building a geographic ontology, while the second is to develop the interface where the users can build their own ontology based however on the predefined generic scheme. This tool has additional functions such as testing the ontology’s consistency, assigning values to properties of geographic concepts and saving locally the ontology in OWL Full format. The current approach applies the specifications of W3C for ontology languages and tools.
