SWING – Semantic Web Services Interoperability for Geospatial Decision Making

Today, a number of non-semantic web services are available within the geospatial domain. The scarcity of semantic annotation and the lack of a supportive environment for discovery and retrieval make it difficult to employ such services to solve a specific task in geospatial decision making. SWING aims at deploying Semantic Web Service (SWS) technology in […]

TAO – Transitioning Applications to Ontologies

TAO is about how existing ‘legacy’ applications can migrate to open, semantics-based Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). We will create an open source infrastructure to aid transitioning of legacy applications to SOA, via ontologies and refactoring into SWS. This will enable a much larger group of companies to exploit semantics without having to re-implement their applications. The […]

NeOn – Lifecycle Support for Networked Ontologies

NeOn is a 14.7 million Euros project involving 14 European partners and co-funded by the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Programme under grant number IST-2005-027595.
