Introduction and Objectives
The objectives of the "Semantic-Web for Mediated Access Across Domains" (SMAAD) project are to:
- Verify that the service oriented architecture - SOA and standards proposed within HMA permit the easy linking of keywords within the metadata to more than one domain ontology and thesaurus.
- Amend as necessary and promote the related standards.
- Demonstrate with a pre-operational prototype that the proposed approach is a viable solution to the discovery support of EO and geospatial information and product users alike.
- Liaise with the INSPIRE and GEOSS initiatives to get feedback, test and demonstrate the usefulness and usability of the proposed approach.
The project expects to create or contribute to the following OGC specifications:
|INSPIRE Conformance Class of OGC CIM using the ebRIM Profile of CSW|
|Discovery Technical Note|
|SensorML EO Extension for catalogue|
|Semantic Annotations in OGC Standards|
