Ontologies in Urban Development Projects (Advanced by Gilles Falquet,Claudine Métral,Jacques Teller,Christopher

By Gilles Falquet,Claudine Métral,Jacques Teller,Christopher Tweed

Ontologies are more and more well-known as crucial instruments in info technological know-how. even though the thoughts are good understood theoretically , the sensible implementation of ontologies is still demanding. during this booklet, researchers in desktop technological know-how, details structures, ontology engineering, city making plans and layout, civil and construction engineering, and structure current an interdisciplinary learn of ontology engineering and its program in city improvement tasks. the 1st a part of the booklet introduces the final proposal of ontology, describing adaptations in abstraction point, assurance, and ritual. It additionally discusses using ontologies to accomplish interoperability, and to symbolize a number of issues of view and multilingualism. this can be illustrated with examples from the city area. the second one half is restricted to city improvement. It covers spatial and geographical wisdom illustration, the construction of city ontologies from a variety of wisdom resources, the interconnection of city versions and the interplay among criteria and area types. The 3rd half provides case reviews of the improvement of ontologies for city mobility, city morphological methods, highway structures, and cultural background. different situations file at the use of ontologies to unravel city improvement difficulties, in development enterprise types, construction laws and concrete regeneration. It concludes with a dialogue of key demanding situations for the longer term deployment of ontologies during this area. This ebook bridges the distance among city practitioners and laptop scientists. because the essence of such a lot city tasks lies in making connections among worldviews, ontology improvement has a massive function to play, in selling interoperability among facts resources, either formal (urban databases, construction built-in types, Geographical details platforms etc.) and no more formal (thesauri, textual content documents, net assets etc.). This quantity bargains a accomplished advent to ontology engineering for city improvement. it really is crucial examining for practitioners and ontology designers operating in city development.
