Conference Paper
The rapid growth of geospatial data (at least 20% every year) makes spatial data increasingly heterogeneous. With the emergence of Semantic Web technologies, more and more approaches are trying to group these data in knowledge graphs, allowing to link data together and to facilitate their sharing, use and maintenance. These approaches face the prob...
Chapter
In this paper we present a new concept of geospatial quality assurance that is currently planned to be implemented in the German Federal Agency of Cartography and Geodesy. Linked open data is being enriched with Semantic Web data in order to create thematic maps relevant to the population. We evaluate the quality of such enriched maps using a stand...

Description on how to interlink heterogenous spatial data using an interlinking ontology partially extracted from official INSPIRE XML schema data
Conference Paper
The paper presents work on implementation of semantic technologies within a geospatial environment to provide a common base for further semantic interpretation. The work adds on the current works in similar areas where priorities are more on spatial data integration. We assert that having a common unified semantic view on heterogeneous datasets pro...

Mit INSPIRE – der Geodateninfrastruktur der Europäischen Gemeinschaft – wird das Ziel verfolgt, umweltrelevante und harmonisierte Geodatenbestände für eine nachhaltige europäische Umweltpolitik und zur allgemeinen Bereitstellung für die Bürger der EU verfügbar zu machen. Die Konzeption und Umsetzung von Diensten der Behörden in Europa muss auf der...
Article
The requirements for an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) for environmental applications are for environmental applications are referenced in the INSPIRE directive. The framework for the implementation is given by key components specified through technical implementing rules. The rules enable sharing of environmental spatia...
Article
The basic principle in the world of geo-information is to implement interoperability open model-based approaches rather than proprietary file formats. But only through the creation of an operating infrastructure for spatial information in the European Region it became necessary to establish a binding and vendor-neutral reference model on organizati...
Conference Paper
This paper presents an ontology-based concept to support the landuse spatial data interoperability within the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE). Land-use spatial data specifications are available for different levels, which define the semantic requirements for the exchange of spatial planning data at local and the European...
Conference Paper
The paper presents a case study which highlights interoperable aspects of geographic information in a local government within the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE). Special emphasis of data and language heterogeneity specifically is given to the integration of community data within the higher infrastructure levels. The exis...

Since 2010, the state of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany has developed a cultural landscape information system as a process to secure and further enrich aggregate data about its cultural assets. In an open dialogue between governing authorities and citizens, the intention of the project is an active cooperation of public and private actors. A cultu...
Conference Paper
An operational spatial information infrastructure needs feasible spatial information exchange between different stakeholders. When building spatial information infrastructures at the international level interoperability between the national level and supra-national level data becomes particularly important. The paper presents a study analyzing spat...

Mit XPlanung steht in Deutschland ein technischer Standard zur Verfügung, auf dessen Grundlage Planwerke produkt-und plattformunabhängig erstellt und verarbeitet werden können. Durch die zunehmende Nutzung von Geoinformationssystemen (GIS) bei Verwal-tungsaufgaben und-entscheidungen werden auch kommunale Bauleitpläne, Ebenen über-greifend sowohl im...
Article
This paper presents a case study which highlights some aspects of local spatial data infrastructure (SDI) implementation in Germany. The study outlines the concrete situation as given in the South Western German State of Rheinland-Pfalz by discussing it in the context of the evolution at higher SDI levels represented by the INSPIRE initiative at th...

A geoportal is an internet entry point to access spatial data infrastructures. By providing web based network services a geoportal is an essential part of a spatial information infrastructure. In the year 2010, the European Commission will start to operate a community geoportal to assist the integration of the national infrastructures of the member...
