INTEGRATION OF SPATIAL TECHNOLOGIES AND SEMANTIC WEB TECHNOLOGIES FOR INDUSTRIAL ARCHAEOLOGY

Ashish Karmacharya, Christophe Cruz, Frank Boochs, Franck Marzani

Abstract

We propose a method that uses the advancement in spatial technologies from current database systems within the Semantic Web Technologies in order to enrich and to populate the knowledge of a domain defined in an OWL-DL ontology. The results of spatial operations and functions are used to populate and to enrich ontologies with new individuals and new relationships. The advantage of spatial analysis within Semantic Web technologies is the diversity of the functionalities provided by the combination of spatial operations and the rule language of the Semantic Web (SWRL). This method is applied in the industrial archaeology domain in order to enhance the knowledge management.
