6th International Workshop on the Foundations, Technologies and
Applications of the Geospatial Web -- Terra Cognita 2014
In Conjunction with the 13th International Semantic Web Conference
October 19-23, 2014
Riva del Garda, Trentino, Italy
Foundations, Technologies and Applications of the Geospatial Web


The wide availability of technologies such as GPS, map services and social
networks, has resulted in the proliferation of geospatial data on the Web.
Similarly, the amount of geospatial data extracted from the Web and
published as Linked Data is increasing. Together with the dissemination of
Web-enabled mobile devices these continually growing data have given rise
to a number of innovative services and applications. With the location of
users being made available widely, new issues such as those pertaining to
security and privacy arise. Emergency response, context sensitive user
applications, and complex GIS tasks all lend themselves toward solutions
that combine both the Geospatial Web and the Semantic Web. The workshop
will bring together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines,
as well as interested parties from industry and government, to advance the
frontiers of this emerging research area. Bringing together Semantic Web
and geospatial researchers helps encourage the use of semantics in
geospatial applications and the use of spatial elements in semantic
research and applications. The field continues to gain popularity,
resulting in a need for a forum to discuss relevant issues.


Data models and languages for the Geospatial Web
Systems and architectures for the Geospatial Web
Geographic information retrieval
Linked geospatial data
Ontologies and rules in the Geospatial Web
Uncertainty in the Geospatial Web
User interface technologies for the Geospatial Web
Geospatial Web and mobile data management
Security and privacy issues in the Geospatial Web
Geospatial Web applications
User-generated geospatial content
Open geospatial data
Big geospatial data
OGC and W3C technologies and standards in the Geospatial Web


We invite two kinds of submissions:
Research papers. These should not exceed 12 pages in length.
Demos. Deployed technologies are important if the Geospatial Web is to be
realized. We therefore strongly encourage the submission of demos, and the
presentation of demos related to research papers (a separate demo paper
does not need to be submitted in this case, but the research paper should
clearly discuss the demo to be presented).
Demo papers should not exceed 5 pages in length.
Submissions should be formatted according to the Lecture Notes in Compute
Science guidelines for proceedings available at

Papers should be submitted in PDF format using the Easy chair system:


At least one author of each accepted paper or demo must register for the
workshop. Information about registration will appear soon on the ISWC 2014
Web page: http://iswc2014.semanticweb.org/. PLEASE NOTE: ISWC does not
allow workshop-only registrations. To attend, you will need to register and
pay for the workshop plus the conference.

Last time, the workshop proceedings were published electronically in the
CEUR series. We plan to do the same this year.


Paper Submission:           July 16, 2014

This is the 6th Terra Cognita workshop. The previous ones were:
2012: Boston, MA, USA
2011: Bonn, Germany
2009: Washington, D.C., USA
2008: Karlsruhe, Germany
2006: Athens, Georgia, USA


This workshop is organized by members of the Spatial Ontology Community of
Practice (SOCoP) and European project LEO: Linked Open Earth Observation
Data for Precision Farming.

SOCoP (http://www.socop.org/) is a geospatial semantics interest group
mainly with members from U.S. federal agencies, academia, and business.
SOCoP’s goal is to foster collaboration among users, technologists, and
researchers of spatial knowledge representation and reasoning towards the
development of a set of core, common geospatial ontologies for use by all
in the Semantic Web.

LEO (http://www.linkedeodata.eu/) is a recent European project that studies
techniques and software for the whole life cycle of reuse of linked open
geospatial data (with a particular emphasis on open Earth Observation
data), and develops a precision farming application that is heavily based
on such data.
