Abstract or Summary
  • Basic research on semantic interoperability is just beginning to address support for spatial data and information. This is clearly important for data portals containing geographic information system (GIS) layers, as well as supplemental information, often with cartographic and decision support tools. Agreements on content/semantic interoperability of these resources can help to eliminate the problems of meaning, making searches between disparate, but mutually beneficial, projects feasible. In recent years significant momentum has occurred in the development of Internet resources for coastal environments, where 2.2 billion people live within a 100 km range. A key aspect of this trend has been the development of coastal web atlases, based on web-enabled GIS. However, current inventories within coastal atlases are insufficient for the purposes of networking between them. Each atlas has different classifications of data and information (e.g., critical information on coastal erosion that may be needed across a broad geographic region as supplied by several different atlases). New semantic web tools and evolvement of standard metadata descriptions and interfaces are opening a road to interoperate within atlases. This paper presents a new semantic mediation approach using ontologies and Open Geospatial Consortium standard interfaces.
