Abstract

This paper presents the design and development of a community application that facilitates user’s access to communities and exchange information between community members. The application provides multiple services in order to satisfy the needs of users sharing a common interest or practice. We introduce a new type of ephemeral communities with geolocalization, that we call spontaneous communities. Our approach is based on an ontology, which models the different components of a community and their relations. The proposed approach has been validated through a prototype for the visitors of a botanical garden.
