Web-based Model for Retrieval of Scientific Data Semantics using DBMS as Data Repository

G. Soldar and D. Smith (UK)


Information search, Semantic Web, RDF, Web interface


The Web provides access to all areas of human knowledge and information. The results of scientific activities that include observations, experiments, interactions, deductions, etc. are stored in data sets and often made available to the scientific community. The provision of appropriate metadata and links to related resources enables the possibility of intelligent assistance in finding and evaluating data sets for scientific research. A method for describing and retrieving semantic information from meteorological data is presented. The appropriate support and retrieval services to enable inference and retrieval tasks over scientific data sets semantics is developed. The conceptualization of the subject domain including the development of the vocabulary is performed using RDF model and schema constructs. The notion of a semantic case is introduced to capture semantic forms.
