Introducing spatial coverage in a semantic repository model

Defense Thèse de doctorat : Univ. Genève, 2017 - GSEM 40 - 2017/01/30
Abstract In this thesis, we propose a model for semantic digital libraries with a geospatial context and a definition of coverage as key concept. We present the document and spatial resource model. We define the annotation model and more particularly the geographic coverage that detail and define the location of each resource taking into account its type. Finally, we present the query model and matching process where the geospatial context is an essential feature. To validate this model, we develop some use cases and implementation. We first focus on annotating documents and precisely locating the documents within the spatial resource. To do so, we describe the implementation of the annotation model, presented in the digital library model, especially the geo-semantic knowledge resources alignment. Then we present the methodology and implementation of a new technique to extract geographic information and place semantic from tags issued of volunteered geographic information (VGI) sources. This technique is based on a categorisation system, with a non-statistical knowledge-based approach. This extraction can partly automate the definition of the geographic coverage for the digital library resources, or be used to enhance semantically or complete 3D models and geo services.
