  3. 3. Tracing Networks The Pelagios ontology workshopTracing Networks investigates the network of contacts across and beyond the Mediterranean region, between the late bronze age and the late classical period (c.1500-c.200 BCE) by interrogating material objects seven archaeological case studies fully integrated with computer science projects programme sets technological networks in their greater social, economic and political contexts to expand our understanding of wider cultural developments these networks from the past can help us devise new and more effective ways of transmitting knowledge and information in our digital world http://www.tracingnetworks.org/ Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  4. 4. Tracing Networks The Pelagios ontology workshopTracing Networks Archaeologists study a wide range of material objects. By tracking them at every stage of their production, distribution, use, and consumption across a large geographical region, over a long time period, they can trace the links between the people who made, used, and taught others to make them.

  6. 6. Tracing Networks The Pelagios ontology workshopTracing Networks: Vocabularies CIDOC-CRM It provides definitions and a formal structure for describing the implicit and explicit concepts and relationships used in cultural heritage documentation. An ontology of 86 classes and 137 properties for culture and more. International standard since 2006 - ISO 21127:2006. The ontology has been encoded in OWL2.0, OWLDL and RDFS. http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/index.html Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation

  9. 9. SEA: Semantic Explorer for Archaeology The Pelagios ontology workshopSEA: Semantic Explorer for Archaeology Motivation The most time-consuming part of an archaeological investigation is the post-excavation analysis. There is therefore a mileage in combining the task of archiving, querying and analysing the data within a single framework. Archaeological data is fragmentary. Inferencing capabilities of reasoners can be used to extract implicit knowledge and contribute to their existing knowledge bases to complete the fragments. Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  10. 10. SEA: Semantic Explorer for Archaeology The Pelagios ontology workshopSEA: Semantic Explorer for Archaeology A web application. RESTful APIs for programmatically accessing the TN-LOD cloud. Interactive and global querying of linked datasets. Data visualisations using user defined perspectives. Statistical analysis using bespoke criteria provided by archaeologists at runtime. Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  11. 11. SEA: Semantic Explorer for Archaeology The Pelagios ontology workshopCase study: Human representations The scope of the project includes examining and analysing human representations on a range of object types and in a range of materials, such as bronze and pottery. The project utilises details such as gestures and postures, dress and associated objects as keys to understanding how identity and new understandings of society are communicated. Raw data is collected through examining objects from published literature or in museum collections. Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  12. 12. SEA: Semantic Explorer for Archaeology The Pelagios ontology workshopHuman representations: Informal queries Example 1: “Find images of riders who appear on the east side of objects found in Austria where the altitude of the excavation site is 500 meters above sea level. I would also like to know the statistical distribution of the material and the technologies used for the production of these objects. I would like to visualise the results as a pie chart and see the distribution of the sites where these objects were found on Google Earth”. Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  13. 13. SEA: Semantic Explorer for Archaeology The Pelagios ontology workshopHuman representations: Informal queries Example 2: “Find all objects which have images of individuals in the orant gesture who are wearing a triangular dress, earrings and who carry a vessel on their head, where the vessel is supported by their left hand. I would also like to know the statistical distribution of the gender of these individuals according to the country in which the objects were found. I would like to visualise the results as a tree map and see the distribution of the sites where these objects were found on Google Map”. Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  14. 14. Motivation The Pelagios ontology workshopMotivation/Problem statement Capture “spatial” metadata about the content of images. Spatial relation based on RCC and the cardinal/ordinal directions. Use ontologies to support annotation and consequently search. Multiple vocabularies to support the process. Annotate only those regions of the image which are contextually relevant and interesting. Use “existing” spatial DL reasoners based on RCC-8. Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  15. 15. Proposed Framework The Pelagios ontology workshopRegion Connection calculus: RCC-8 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Region_connection_calculus Defines a primitive reflexive and symmetric dyadic relation C(x; y), - region x connects with region y. On top of this relation, a number of other dyadic relations are defined. Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  16. 16. Proposed Framework The Pelagios ontology workshopRegion Connection calculus: RCC-8 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Region_connection_calculus disconnected (DC) externally connected (EC) equal (EQ) partially overlapping (PO) tangential proper part (TPP) tangential proper part inverse (TPPi) non-tangential proper part (NTPP) non-tangential proper part inverse (NTPPi) Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  17. 17. Proposed Framework The Pelagios ontology workshopCardinal and ordinal directions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brosen_windrose.svg Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  18. 18. Proposed Framework The Pelagios ontology workshopA “coarse” notion of spatial fuzziness X right_of Y: what does “right_of” entail in terms of cardinal and ordinal directions?  north_west_of   south_west_of    west_north_west_of right_of  west_of     west_south_west_of   south_east_of    north_east_of    east_south_east_of left_of  east_of     east_north_east_of  Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation

  21. 21. Proposed Framework The Pelagios ontology workshopPellet Spatial A Hybrid RCC-8 and RDF/OWL Reasoning and Query Engine. Provides consistency checking and query answering. Supports all RCC-8 relations as well as standard RDF/OWL semantic relations. Supports SPARQL querying over consistent sets of spatial relations and non-spatial semantic RDF relations. http://clarkparsia.com/pellet/spatial/ Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  22. 22. Proposed Framework The Pelagios ontology workshopExample http://en.wikipedia.org/ Monika Solanki Semantic Reasoning over Qualitative Spatial Relations for Image Interpretation
  23. 23. Proposed Framework The Pelagios ontology workshopConclusions A preliminary approach has been presented to query image repositories based on the spatial orientation of image regions. A coarse notion of fuzziness has been used in defining the spatial orientation of image regions relative to each other. Cardinal/ordinal directional predicates along with RCC-8 relations have been used. Existing DL based spatial reasoners exploited. Still WIP: lots more needs to be done.
