Spatial Ontology Community of Practice (SOCoP) • The Spatial Ontology Community of Practice was officially begun in October of 2006 to: • Foster collaboration among researchers, technologists & users of spatial knowledge representations and reasoning towards the development of spatial ontologies for use by all in the Semantic Web. • Support open collaboration and open standards for increased interoperability of spatial data across government (and spatial community) • Synchronize across the entire spectrum of applicable geospatial standards • Membership • open to interested parties • Transitioning leadership upon retirement of current co-chair John Moeller • Government Co-chair -Kevin Backe (US Army) . 3 4
6th Annual SOCoP Workshop • Purpose: to continue the discussion from GeoVoCamp as follow-up previous SOCoP workshops and VoCamps participated in by SOCoP members. • The session is organized around 3-4 Work Groups made up of domain experts, group facilitators and people with semantic/ ontological experience. • This will be a great opportunity for people interested in using semantics to see lightweight approaches applied in context. 4 5
SOCoP recent areas of activity • NSF Program Grant: • Community-based Data Interoperability Networks (INTEROP) • VoCamps • Workshop on Semantics in Geospatial Architectures: Applications and Implementation • Terra Cognita (ISWC) • Collaboration with ONTOLOG, USGS, EarthCube, etc 5 6
http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/meetings/geosp_sem/ 2-day workshop focused on including semantic components in geospatial applications and architectures. Geospatial domain and GIS people encouraged to come to the workshop to listen to presentations, engage in discussions, and help guide users’ needs. A goal - foster the inclusion of semantics in geospatial systems including national spatial data infrastructures (NSDIs) and state information systems. This workshop was supported by an NSF INTEROP grant.
