An Ontology based Approach to Integrate Data and Maps - In the Government Enterprise Architecture: A Case Study

Daniela Giordano, Alfredo Torre, Carmelo Samperi, Salvatore Alessi, Alberto Faro

Abstract

The problem of managing data and maps within an ontological approach is little studied in the Government Enterprise Architecture. Aim of this paper is to present a methodology to solve this problem in case we would join municipal and cadastral data bases. In particular, we aim at linking the information contained in the local taxation registry to the urban territory to allow the Public Administration managers to check if the taxes have been paid, and the citizens to compute the correct amount to pay. We plan to extend this methodology to manage other relevant location based services that need to interconnect public and private data stores of city interest to vector drawings derived from the Cadastre or other CAD systems to define territorial plans immediately understandable to all the involved organizations.
