Abstract

Geosphere - a cooperative project, which includes ontologies for describing vocabularies and catalogs, is discussed. The main purpose of developing this project was to develop user-centric services to support better governance, democratic processes, and a sustainable and balanced development of rural and urban areas around the country. This approach combines serveral techniques from the Semantic Web community, including description logics for describing information sources, ontologies for application domains, terminological reasoning, and known catalog services from the geographical domain. This project enables user's interaction with other services as well and has led to a better and more accurate results.
