Geographic information -- Ontology -- Part 2: Rules for developing ontologies in the Web Ontology Language (OWL)


ISO 19150-2:2015 defines rules and guidelines for the development of ontologies to support better the interoperability of geographic information over the Semantic Web. The Web Ontology Language (OWL) is the language adopted for ontologies.

It defines the conversion of the UML static view modeling elements used in the ISO geographic information standards into OWL. It further defines conversion rules for describing application schemas based on the General Feature Model defined in ISO 19109 into OWL.

It does not define semantics operators, rules for service ontologies, and does not develop any ontology.
