How can the efficiency of spatial information inquiries be enhanced in today's fast-growing information age? We are rich in geospatial data but poor in up-to-date geospatial information and knowledge that are ready to be accessed by public users. This paper adopts an approach for querying spatial semantic by building an Web Ontology language(OWL) format ontology and introducing SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language(SPARQL) to search spatial semantic relations. It is important to establish… Expand
Hybrid geo-spatial query processing on the semantic web
This thesis demonstrates that structured geo-spatial query, a form of question answering, on DBpedia can be performed with a hybrid query method that exploits quantitative and qualitative spatial properties in combination with a high quality reference geo-dataset that can help to support a full range of geo- Spatial query operators such as proximity, containment and crossing as well as vague directional queries.

Ontology-Based Geographic Data Access in a Peer Data Management System
This work presents an approach and a tool, named easeGO, which provides access to a geographic database using an ontology as a middle layer between the user interface and the data, and allows users to formulate queries using visual elements and spatial operators. Expand
Enabling the geospatial Semantic Web with Parliament and GeoSPARQL
The motivation for GeoSPARQL is described, the current state of the art in industry and research is explained, followed by an example use case, and finally the implementation of GeoSParQL in the Parliament triple store is described. Expand
GeoSPARQL : Enabling a Geospatial Semantic Web
As the amount of Linked Open Data on the web increases, so does the amount of data with an inherent spatial context. Without spatial reasoning, however, the value of this spatial context is limited.Expand
A comprehensive overview of RDF for spatial and spatiotemporal data management
Abstract Currently, a large amount of spatial and spatiotemporal RDF data has been shared and exchanged on the Internet and various applications. Resource Description Framework (RDF) is widelyExpand
Distributed Vector Based Spatial Data Conation Services
A specific database version model is built upon – the multiversion MVBD – which has already been successfully implemented in several geospatial scena rios, being extended here to support multi-focus research. Expand
