ISO 25964: a standard in support of KOS

ISO 25964: Information and documentation – Thesauri and interoperability with other vocabularies will be a two-part standard that updates and revises the existing international standards for monolingual and multilingual thesauri. And not just that: it should also help thesauri to play their full part in access to networked resources, particularly in a Semantic Web context. Part 1 (dealing with the development and establishment of thesauri) is on track for publication in 2011, while Part 2 (focusing on interoperability) is scheduled for completion in 2012. A large part of the content is intended to standardize mapping between one vocabulary and another.

Semantic interoperability in an international comprehensive knowledge organization system (KOS)

In this paper, the functional and relational characteristics and requirements for various types of semantic interoperability in a comprehensive international knowledge organisation system are discussed with regard to an analysis of the underlying retrieval paradigms. Furthermore, this paper analyses the potential benefits and perspectives of the selective transfer of modelling strategies from the field of semantic technologies for the refinement of relational structures of inter-system and inter-concept relations as a requirement for expressive and functional indexing languages supporting advanced types of semantic interoperability.

INSPIRE and the work of UK location

The UK Location programme is a UK pan-government initiative to improve the sharing and re-use of public sector location information. Established following the publication of the UK Location Strategy, it incorporates the implementation of the strategy and the EC INSPIRE Directive. Key to delivering both INSPIRE and the broader strategy is the use of interoperable data and service standards. This forms the basis of providing a spatial data infrastructure that works in the wider context of internet technologies and critically with other information domains. To do this UK Location encourages and in some cases enforces data standards but also works to enable use of location data more widely through broader standards such as linked data.
