SMOP: A Semantic Web and Service Driven Information Gathering Environment for Mobile Platforms
In this paper, we introduce a mobile services environment, namely SMOP, in which semantic web based service capability matching and location-aware information gathering are both used to develop mobile applications. Domain independency and support on semantic matching in mobile service capabilities are the innovative features of the proposed environment. Built-in semantic matching engine of the environment provides the addition of new service domain ontologies which is critical in terms of system extensibility. Therefore the environment is generic in terms of developing various mobile applications and provides most relevant services for mobile users by applying semantic capability matching in service lookups. GPS (Global Positioning System) and map service utilization cause to find near services in addition to capability relevancy. The software architecture and system extensibility support of the environment are discussed in the paper. The real life implementation of the environment for the estate domain is also given as a case study in the evaluation section of the paper.
