Carl et al,


Eric Little sent some ontology references to his ontology work on
fusing data data for disasters.  The details are below.

This is the first response we got from the Spatial Ontology Community
of Practice (SOCoP).

Hi Gary,

Long time no see.  We worked on a disaster management ontology as part
of a larger post-earthquake disaster fusion architecture for AFOSR.
I'm not sure what I can share in terms of the project specifics or the
ontology that was built (which was more theoretical than
implementational btw).  But we did publish several things on our
approach and some results that came out of it for ambulance routing
and casualty cluster identification.  Those papers are listed below.
In the bibliography are several other papers that were written by
colleagues Rogova, Scott, & Lollett, which dealt with the specific
algorithmic applications that utilized some of the ontological
modeling I did.  Best.

Fusion," Journal of Information Fusion, special issue on Higher Level
Fusion, Vol. 10, Issue 1, Elsevier Press.
