  • Applications of Linked Data in the Rail Domain

    This paper presents early findings from a larger study, into the use of linked data in the rail domain. The study and other literature has shown there to be benefits from improved integration of data in this domain and proposes that linked data in general and ontology in particular will address this. The paper will set out the current state of data integration in the British rail domain, highlighting issues found there. The manner in which linked data is employed in the broader transport domain will then be examined along with previous work pertaining to the rail domain.
  • POSITION PAPER: Ontology in the Rail Domain

    This paper presents the railway core ontologies, a group of related ontologies designed to model the rail domain in detail. The purpose of these ontologies is to enable improved data integration in the rail domain, which will deliver business benefits in the form of improved customer perceptions and more efficient use of the rail network. The modularity of the ontologies allows for both detailed modelling of the domain at a high level and the storing of instance data at lower levels. It concludes that the benefits of improved rail data integration are best realised through the use of the railway core ontologies.

  • FROM DATA TO INFORMATION: PROVISION OF RAILWAY DATA TO PASSENGERS IN THE INFORMATION AGE


    This paper puts foward the case for using RaCoOn for data integration in the the rail domain and sets out tools for expanding RaCoOn
