2007-10-31: The Geospatial Incubator Group published theirs reports on
Geospatial Vocabulary [1] and Geospatial Ontologies [2]. The first
document define a basic ontology and OWL [3] vocabulary for
representation of geospatial properties for Web resources. The second
gives an overview and description of geospatial foundation ontologies to
represent geospatial concepts and properties on the Web. Use cases [4]
for this work are described in the charter of the XG [5]. Both
publications are part of the Incubator Activity [6], a forum where W3C
Members can innovate and experiment.
