    Towards an infrastructure for semantic applications: Methodologies for semantic integration of heterogeneous resources 2006
    Also available in:

    As with many domains, information retrieval and knowledge management (IR/KM) in agriculture suffers from the problems of semantic heterogeneity, making it difficult for providers to disseminate their services effectively and for users to retrieve the information they need. Based on the analysis of resources in the domain of agriculture, this paper proposes a) application profiles for dealing with the problem of heterogeneity originating from differences in terminologies, domain coverage, and dom ain modelling, and b) a root ontology based on the application profile which can serve as a basis for extending knowledge of the domain.

    Building An Integrated Formal Ontology for Semantic Interoperability in the Fishery Domain 2002

    This paper outlines a project (involving FAO, SIFAR, and CNR) aiming at building a formal ontology in the fishery domain. The ontology will support semantic interoperability among existing fishery information systems and will enhance information extraction and text marking, envisaging a fishery semantic web. The ontology is being built through the conceptual integration

    A core ontology of fishery and its use in the fishery ontology service project 2004

    Ontology creation and document indexing are well-known, critical bottlenecks for integrating semantic services and in general for bootstrapping the Semantic Web. For certain domains or communities, legacy terminologies and indexing methods exist which can be reused effectively. In the Fishery Ontology Project (FOS), we have reengineered and aligned legacy thesauri by using formal ontological methods, and we are deploying the resulting ontology library (currently including more than 3 5,000 classes and about 10,000 individuals) for services dedicated to fishery document repositories and databases. Alignment, reengineering, and modularization of the library leverage on the Core Ontology for Fishery developed in FOS. Its structure and use are described in this paper.
