In imagistic domains, such as Medicine, Meteorology and Geology, the tasks are accomplished through intensive use of visual knowledge, offering many challenges to the Computer Science. In this work we focus in an essential task accomplished in many imagistic domains: the visual interpretation task. We call visual interpretation the expert reasoning process(More)
This paper proposes a knowledge model for representing concepts that requires pictorial as well as conceptual representation to fully capture the ontological meaning. The model was built from the proposition of pictorial primitives to be associated to the original conceptual primitives. The formalized pictorial content is then used to provide an(More)

—In visual domains, the tasks are accomplished through intensive use of visual knowledge. In this paper, we are interested in the visual interpretation task, which is prevalent in many visual domains. We investigate the role played by foundational ontologies in reasoning processes that deals with visual information, as those that are performed in visual(More)
Em domínios visuais como a Medicina, a Meteorologia e a Geologia, as tarefas são realizadas através de uma aplicação intensiva do conhecimento visual dos especialistas. A natureza tácita do conhecimento visual impõe mui-tos desafios para Ciência da Computação em termos de aquisição, modelagem, representação e raciocínio. Neste trabalho será apresentada uma(More)
