Cooperative Semantic Document Management
Document management concerns the storage, retrieval, and presentation of documents being created from multiple sources and delivered to different users. Semantic approaches for document management are based on enriching metadata and deriving semantic document models. However, the detection of relationships between documents is constrained by the metadata quality as well as the underlying domain ontology. This paper proposes a software architecture for cooperative semantic document management. Its rationale is to separate the semantic representation of single documents from knowledge about domain-specific relationships in two architectural layers. The applicability and utility is demonstrated in an use case scenario from civil engineering.
