  • 3. Background3(*) http://ggim.un.org/ (UN Report, 2012)National Mapping Agencies (NMAs) are likely tofind difficult to justify the costs of traditionaldata maintenance mechanisms.VGI projects (like OpenStreetMap) are growingand are seen as a good data source to beintegrated with authoritative datasets.There is growing need of integrating differentdata sources.Semantic interoperability is still an issue in theintegration problem.TheneedofintegratingGeographicInformationfromdifferentsources?Levels of heterogeneitySystemSyntacticStructuralSemantic(meaning of words)

  • 11. Conclusions and future work11Proposed approach is based in a domain ontology, which allows:• Matching datasets to a common pivot (R2RML allows flexible and directmappings)• No need to know how to handle ontologies.• Reusing the mappings.Semantic Heterogeneity in OSM datasets.• Number of tags and their % of occurrence per real-world phenomenon• Time and spatial scale are factors affecting SH in OSM datasets.Future work:• Developing more the ontology.• User-friendly interface for making R2RML mappings.• Deeper study factors involved in SH in OSM datasets, trying to model it.
