Geospatial Semantics: Why, of What, and How? [chapter]

Werner Kuhn
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
No attempt at a survey of approaches to provide semantics is made, but a framework for solving interoperability problems is proposed in the form of semantic reference systems.  ...  The main reason lies in the componentization of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) into services, which are supposed to interoperate within and across these communities.  ...  Acknowledgments Discussions with the members of MUSIL ( and with too many colleagues to be named have greatly influenced and improved the ideas presented here.  ...

The Semantics of Web Services: An Examination in GIScience Applications

Xuan Shi
2013 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
Web service is a technological solution for software interoperability that supports the seamless integration of diverse applications.  ...  Although it was criticized that WSDL only has a syntactic definition of web services, but was not semantic, prior initiatives in semantic web services did not establish a correct methodology to resolve  ...  GIS scientists had discussed the interoperability issues in the 1990s [27] . At the technical (syntactic) level, interoperability is relatively easy to achieve.  ...
