  • 2. Overview• Introduction• Motivation• Translating O&M and GML features to RDF• Example of Use• Conclusion21.06.2011 2
  • 3. Introduction• OGC provides standards to encode vector data (GML features) and sensor data (as O&M)• Web of Data - Linked Data facilitates the exploration of related datasets – Raw data encoded in RDF – Resolvable URIs as names for things – Data is connected to another dataset using RDF links (Berners-Lee, 2006)• HTML vs. Linked Data – Hyperlinks connect documents w/o defining the relation – Linked Data allows linking datasets via typed relations• Huge geospatial datasets recently added to Web of Data – OpenStreetMaps – Ordnance Survey 3
  • 4. Motivation• Integration of geospatial data into the Web of Data is still missing!• Why Geographic Feature Pipes?«…a hosted service that lets you remix feeds and create new data mashups in a visual programming environment. The name of the service pays tribute to Unix pipelines, which make it easy to chain simple utilities together on the command line.» (Official Yahoo! Pipes Blog)21.06.2011 4
  • 5. Outline• Intro• Motivation• Translating O&M and GML features to RDF• Example of Use – River Navigation• Conclusion21.06.2011 5
  • 6. Translating O&M and GML features into RDFGeographic Feature Pipes (GFP)• Java API deployed as free proxy-based Web service• Allows for merging data from geospatial features and related sensor observations in one document• Supports complex queries in SPARQL• Increases the accessibility to non-OGC data sources21.06.2011 6
  • 7. Translating O&M and GML features into RDFArchitecture based on Sesame21.06.2011 7
  • 8. Translating O&M and GML features into RDF• Translation requires an ontological representation of the service• GI Source Ontology – Composed of Service Model Ontology and Data Model Ontology• SMO – Web service structural description – Based on Procedure-Oriented Service Model –• DMO – Data model description21.06.2011 8
  • 9. Translating O&M and GML features into RDF21.06.2011 9
  • 10. Translating O&M and GML features into RDFGFP.Translator• O&M ontology – – Aligned to W3C’s Semantic Sensor Network (SSN) ontology• OGC Feature ontology – – Based on OGC’s GML simple features profile (10- 100r2) – Geographic coordinates represented as WKT21.06.2011 10
  • 11. Example of Use – River NavigationFind the navigable rivers for predetermined vessels• Observation data - SOS – River water level• River features - WFSExample: Get all the rivers in NRW with a depth >= 4 m21.06.2011 11
  • 12. Conclusion & Future WorkConclusion• Service able to merge GML features & observations and publish them as Linked Data• Supports a more efficient geographic information retrieval• SPARQL allows powerful exploration & aggregationFuture Work• Raster data,...• Semantic annotations of the Data Models...21.06.2011 12
