Core Geographical Concepts: Case Finnish Geo-Ontology

Riikka Henriksson, Tomi Kauppinen, Eero Hyvönen


In this paper we examine 1) the scope of geo-ontologies used especially for the purposes of information retrieval from the Web, 2) the core geographical concepts and their mutual relations, and 3) the properties the concepts have. Furthermore, we present the Finnish geo-ontology (Suomalainen paikkaontologia, SUO) and discuss the theories and principles that have governed the development process, as well as the limitations and requirements the use of geographical dictionaries as an instance data source have imposed to the content and the structure of SUO.
