The Region Connection Calculus based on 8 relations (RCC8) is one of several extensively researched methods to use for qualitative spatial representation and reasoning. We discuss several issues arising when representing RCC8 in OWL DL, a decidable fragment of OWL. There is no direct encoding of such a calculus in OWL DL, as the language lacks required features such as role reflexivity, role Boolean operators, and role inclusion axioms. Some of these features are to be included in the new… CONTINUE READING
