Position Paper: Ontology in the Rail Domain - The Railway Core Ontologies

Christopher Morris, John Easton, Clive Roberts

Abstract

This paper presents the railway core ontologies, a group of related ontologies designed to model the rail domain in detail. The purpose of these ontologies is to enable improved data integration in the rail domain, which will deliver business benefits in the form of improved customer perceptions and more efficient use of the rail network. The modularity of the ontologies allows for both detailed modelling of the domain at a high level and the storing of instance data at lower levels. It concludes that the benefits of improved rail data integration are best realised through the use of the railway core ontologies.
