This Interoperability Experiment (IE) will address several important steps towards the development of a Geospatial Semantic Web (GSW), where discovery, query, and consumption of geospatial content are based on formal semantic specification. Many pieces of the GSW puzzle have been worked extensively in the last several years; this experiment aims to augment WFS/FE with a semantic query capability, through the definition of an ontology for the geospatial intelligence community.
