Semantic Spatial Reasoning - Developing a Conceptual Framework for Reasoning with Semantic, Qualitative-Quantitative Spatial Information

Roman Katerinenko

Abstract

In recent years, significant achievements have been made on handling qualitative spatial relations in the field of qualitative spatial reasoning. These achievements can be utilized to bridge the gap between geometries and semantics of real-world objects. With this purpose we introduce the Semantic Spatial Reasoning conceptual framework for reasoning with information of mixed types: qualitative-quantitative spatial and information described with the help of the Semantic Web technologies. The objective of this framework is not to be a particular reasoning algorithm but a conceptual decomposition suitable for showing benefits of the combined reasoning approach, forecasting practical applications and giving a clue for an implementation. Modular structure of the framework makes it useful to model various tasks in areas, such as, GIS, cognitive vision, computer-aided design, data integration.
