The use of metadata expands on the opportunities for interoperability. By interoperability, it is meant the ability to develop conventions that enable data exchange and integration. Metadata descriptions from different domains are not semantically distinct but overlap and relate to each other in complex ways. As the number, size and complexity of the(More)
This work proposes an architectural style, a pattern, for SDIs. This style provides a tool and a shared vocabulary to help system architects to design these infrastructures, and facilitates the exchange of knowledge about them. This style is defined under the component-andconnector architectural viewtype, extending the client-server and shared-data styles.(More)
In July 2004 the INSPIRE Proposal for a Directive was adopted by the Commission, aiming to establish an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe.

The use of open technologies and standards have made easier the integration of Web services into end-applications. These interoperable services have been organized on distributed architectures over Internet in accordance with shared functional principles. But these Web-service architectures have not resolved the distributed computing difficulty in ”gluing(More)
Geoparsing and geocoding are two essential middleware services to facilitate final user applications such as location-aware searching or different types of location-based services. The objective of this work is to propose a method for establishing a processing chain to support the geoparsing and geocoding of text documents describing events strongly linked(More)
The tendency of current cataloguing systems is to interchange metadata in XML according to the specific standard required by each user on demand. Furthermore, metadata schemas from different domains are not usually semantically distinct but overlap and relate to each other in complex ways. As a consequence, the semantic interoperability has to deal with the(More)
