Architectural Framework and Operational Concept for Semantic Interoperability

Semantic interoperability is a needed capability to successfully exchange data in ocean science. The computer science and geo-informatics communities are introducing technical solutions, but there remains a challenge: the best approach toward semantic interoperability requires a designed framework, and operationally tested tools and infrastructure within that framework.

This document outlines a semantic framework, and infrastructure (tools, operational and community procedures) that will meet short-term and long-term semantic interoperability goals. It describes a process that yields immediate benefits to data originators and data users, yet progresses gracefully to an entirely interoperable semantic infrastructure.

Architectural Overview


I was in search of an article which could tell me in detail about the Semantic Interoperability and also MMI’s developing semantic framework. The diagram of the framework itself explains the whole concept and the explanation for the diagram is an added advantage.
