5 The University of Nottingham Centre for Geospatial Science Mike Jackson Centre for Geospatial Science Research Focus: - Geospatial Interoperability Geospatial intelligence Mobile location based services CASS Presentation 20 June 2005

6 Geospatial Interoperability Mike Jackson Centre for Geospatial Science Research themes to include: Semantics and the Semantic Web Semantics describes what words mean while Syntax describes the rules by which words can be combined into sentences. The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and re-used across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. It is a collaborative effort led by W3C with participation from a large number of researchers and industrial partners. It is based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF), which integrates a variety of applications using XML for syntax and URIs for naming.RDF "The Semantic Web is an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation." -- Tim Berners-Lee, James Hendler, Ora Lassila, The Semantic Web, Scientific American, May See Semantic Web CASS Presentation 20 June 2005

7 Geospatial Interoperability Mike Jackson Centre for Geospatial Science Research themes to include: Spatial Ontologies - an ontology is a description, like a formal specification of a program, of the concepts and relationships that can exist with and between spatial entities. Ontologies need to be defined for the purpose of enabling knowledge sharing and reuse over the web. There are a number of ontology languages which have been developed – Ontolingua, OCML, OWL,… but none are specific to spatial concepts and there is a need for a Spatial Ontology Language) CASS Presentation 20 June 2005

8 Geospatial Interoperability Mike Jackson Centre for Geospatial Science And also: Participation in the specification process for OGC spatial standards and architectures, Conformancy and performance testing Test-bed development OGC Training initiatives CASS Presentation 20 June 2005

9 The University of Nottingham Centre for Geospatial Science Mike Jackson Centre for Geospatial Science CASS Presentation 20 June 2005 Research Associate/Fellow: Geospatial Interoperability Architects (1) a lead architect and implementer for the Centre’s standards-compliant geospatial development platform. (2) OGC standards architect for industry based KTP project. Good 1st degree, pref. a PhD for (1) Strong background in software design/development within a web-based, SOA environment. Working experience with OGC and related standards is required. Will involve participation in OGC test-beds and the standards specification process. Post will include systems development and support for the Centre’s overall research programme + original research in the area of geospatial interoperability. Salary: £19,460 - £29,128
