In this paper we describe a core ontology for N-dimensional spatial reasoning. The ontology is intended to support both quantitative and qualitative approaches and is expressed using set notation. Using the ontology; spatial domains of discourse, spatial objects and their attributes, and the relationships that can link spatial objects can be expressed in terms of sets, and sets of sets. The core ontology has been emphparameterised to express a number of task dependent ontologies in application… CONTINUE READING
