Type of standard ISO International Standard
meta level
Application These rules are required for ontology description completeness, consistency in the set of OWL ontologies for geographic information, consistency in the conversion of UML diagrams to OWL ontologies, and cohesion and unity between UML models and ontologies.
Conformance classes Conversion of a UML package from the ISO/TC 211 Harmonized Model to OWL
Formalization of an application schema in OWL

Scope

ISO 19150-2:2015 defines rules and guidelines for the development of ontologies to support better the interoperability of geographic information over the Semantic Web. The Web Ontology Language (OWL) is the language adopted for ontologies.

It defines the conversion of the UML static view modeling elements used in the ISO geographic information standards into OWL. It further defines conversion rules for describing application schemas based on the General Feature Model defined in ISO 19109:2015 Geographic information - Rules for application schema into OWL.

It does not define semantics operators, rules for service ontologies, and does not develop any ontology.

Implementation benefits

This Technical Specification ensures completeness, consistency of OWL ontologies, consistency in conversion of UML diagrams into OWL, and cohesion and unity between ISO/TC 211 UML models and ontologies.

ISO 19150-2:2015

  • defines rules and guidelines for the development of ontologies to support better the interoperability of geographic information over the Semantic Web;
  • specifies Web Ontology Language (OWL) as the language adopted for ontologies;
  • defines the conversion of the UML static view modeling elements used in the ISO geographic information standards into OWL; and
  • defines conversion rules for describing application schemas based on the General Feature Model defined in ISO 19109 into OWL.
