SOLIM project submits research paper

Part of the SOLIM project’s research results have been submitted as a research paper entitled “The use of OWL for Spatial Knowledge based Applications” in the Semantic Web journal.

The paper was written by representatives of SemLab, Tilde, Picsearch and AGMLab. In this paper it is demonstrated that the use of OWL and spatial reasoning tools – despite shortcomings – enables effective storage of, and reasoning with spatial information by use of a hybrid solution. The utility of this solution will be illustrated by its application in two diverse domains; automatic processing of textual information and querying of graphical information, in machine translation and image searching applications.
