A semantic approach to retrieving, linking, and integrating heterogeneous geospatial data

Ying Zhang, Yao-Yi Chiang, Pedro Szekely, Craig A. Knoblock
2013 Joint Proceedings of the Workshop on AI Problems and Approaches for Intelligent Environments and Workshop on Semantic Cities - AIIP '13  
Finally, we link the geospatial data (in RDF) from different sources using a semantic matching algorithm and integrate them using SPARQL queries.  ...  Then we model and publish the extracted geospatial data to RDF for eliminating the data heterogeneity.  ...  We take Wikimapia and OpenStreetMap as the example sources in this paper.  ...
