Development of context-aware applications is inherently complex. These applications adapt to changing context information: physical context, computational context , and user context/tasks. Context information is gathered from a variety of sources that differ in the quality of information they produce and that are often failure prone. The pervasive computing(More)
Context-aware applications adapt their behavior based on changes of the physical world, which is often obtained with a huge amount of sensors. Thus, the development of such applications is cumbersome, in particular the implementation of their often complex control flow. To ease the development of context-aware applications we present the concept of(More)
Semantic Web technologies, most notably RDF, are well-suited to cope with typical challenges in spatial data management including analyzing complex relations between entities, integrating heterogeneous data sources and exploiting poorly structured data, e.g., from web communities. Also, RDF can easily represent spatial relationships, as long as the location(More)
