The use of ontologies may vary from being an intellectual background for data collection or entry in a spreadsheet over database schema creation to a formal representation of ontologies in RDF or OWL using Semantic Web Technologies. We believe that using ontologies to structure data improves the fitness of the data for reuse, extension and integration with other data sources. Ontologies create a network of data where the nodes represent the concepts (like physical things, persons, places, events or conceptual things) and the edges represent the relations between the concepts (like a physical thing is owned by a person).


  •  The Rock Art Database: Developing A Rock Art Reference Model Using The CIDOC CRM And Australian Heritage Example

    This paper forms a part of the larger Rock Art Database (RADB) project. It discusses the design stage of the RADB System and the development of a conceptual RADB Reference Model (RARM) that is used to inform the design of the Rock Art Database Management System. It examines the success and failure of international and national systems and uses the Australian heritage sector and Australian rock art as a test model to develop a method for the RADB System design. The system aims to help improve rock art management by introducing the CIDOC CRM in conjunction with a rock art specific domain model. It seeks to improve data compatibility and data sharing to help with the integration of a variety of resources to create the global Rock Art Database Management System.

    The CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM) is an ontology and provides definitions and a formal structure for describing the implicit and explicit concepts and relationships used in cultural heritage documentation. It is an ISO standard since 2006 and the latest version is ISO 21127:2014.

    Keywords: Ontology, CIDOC CRM, GIS, OGC Standards, CRMgeo

    The ISO certified ontology of the CIDOC CRM provides the concepts to model archaeological data in their semantic context while the Open Geospatial Consortiums (OGC) defines standards for geographic information. This paper presents the CRMgeo extension which integrates the CIDOC CRM with the OGC standard of 'GeoSPARQL'.
