Abstract

Semantic resources, such as ontologies and taxonomies, are used in various domains to facilitate information exchange between people and software applications. However, in many cases, accessing a single semantic resource is no longer adequate. Consequently, new initiatives targeting the interoperability and integration of existing semantic resources have been recently increasingly investigated. This paper describes the methodology used during the FUNSIEC project to develop an Open Semantic Infrastructure for the European Construction Sector (OSIECS). This infrastructure aims to facilitate integration and interoperability between construction related semantic resources, providing a base for the development of a new generation of e-services for the domain.
