Geospatial Semantic Web: Personalization
What Is the Semantic Web?
The basic principle underlying the semantic web is the idea of having data defined and linked in such a way that it can be used for more effective discovery, automation, integration, and reuse across various applications (Berners-Lee et al. 2001; Fensel 2002). With the idea of a semantic web in which machines can understand, process and reason about resources to provide better and more comfortable support for humans in interacting with the World Wide Web, the question of personalizing the interaction with web content to user needs and profile is of prime significance.
What Is the Geospatial Semantic Web?
Geographic data has meanings associated with it and semantic annotations of geographic data will allow for better retrieval and more effective use of geospatial services. Recent developments...
