GIS and Semantic Technologies Grant

Just a quick heads-up for those who are interested: This year I will work together with the folks at the Austrian Research Centers (environmental IT systems, to be exact) on implementing semantic technologies into their products.

Their product line(s) in this area have grown over the years and flexible data integration and meaningful presentation of environmental information to end users are the core issues there. The ARCS engineers have already started to incorporate semantic technologies and as I have been experimenting with GIS systems recently, I think this is perfect timing to involve myself.

Work is based on a one-year grant (Hertha Firnberg Stipendium) and it also covers academic work (lectures, talks, publications) in this area. It is also agreed that I should continue with my involvement in the standardization work.

Heads down, carry on!
