Modelling real estate transactions: The potential role of ontologies

Ubbo Visser, Christoph Schlieder

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Ontologies have been identified as valuable formal models that support communication exchange. In this paper we introduce various and recent modelling methods and address their potential for modelling transactions in land in general. We identify drawbacks and argue that ontologies can help to overcome the obstacles. After discussing formal ontologies in more detail we conclude with specific domain ontologies and discuss the advantages and disadvantages.
