Specification of a framework for semantic annotation of geospatial data on the web

Carla Geovana N. Macário, Claudia Bauzer Medeiros
2009 SIGSPATIAL Special  
Ef cient retrieval of geospatial information (GI) available on the Web is a key factor in planning and decision-making in a variety of domains.  ...  This work proposes a framework to support management of semantic annotations for digital content on the Web e.g. satellite images, sensor data, maps and graphs for agricultural planning and monitoring.  ...  After that, we will specify the scienti c work ows for generation of the annotations and start the implementation phase. The framework validation will be done by these experts, using real data.  ...
