Paper Abstract

Rule engine technique which is firstly used in business realm because of the quickly changing business environment can be a good solution to the management of geographic knowledge. The objective of this paper is to research how to organize geographic knowledge and reason with rule engine. The rules of Keys to Chinese Soil Taxonomy (3rd edition) are taken as an example of geographic knowledge. The researching results are as follows: (1) Through the review of literature and web resources, we know the advancement of rule engine technique, and finally select NxBRE as the rule engine we use; (2) The rules of keys to Soil Orders are analyzed, and represented in the form of RuleML; (3) Rule customization module and RuleML parsing module are developed; (4) Knowledge base which consists of RuleML files is created with rule customization module, and we finally achieve the goal of automated keys to Soil Orders with NxBRE.
