Paper Abstract

GML is an XML encoding for the modeling, transport and storage of geographic information, which has been making a significant influential on the ability of organizations to share geographic information among their Web based GIS applications. Ontology has been acknowledged to be the kernel methodology for capturing and sharing semantics of spatial information. This paper proposes a framework for integrating spatial information based on GML schema matching by using ontology technologies, in which GML is adopted as the common format for spatial information wrapping and mediation, and ontology is used to overcome the heterogeneity when matching different GML schemas. A prototype is also implemented based on the proposed framework.
