Road System Ontology: Organisation and Feedback

Part of the Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing book series (AI&KP, volume 1)


The project of developing an urban ontology for road systems is to be viewed in the context of a lack of coordination tools between urban engineering actors. The aim is to fill this gap. By reducing semantic disagreement and increasing data interchange, this tool should improve urban maintenance services (road system maintenance, public spaces, etc.). It will also improve synchronising the coordination of the interventions on networks as well as the consistent elaboration of the various related urbanism documents. A first stage emerged from the creation of a road system ontology. This first link is currently under development as part of a collaborative research project with Lyon’s Urban Community Services.
