Annotating Maps -- Geospatial Semantics, the Cartographic Object Ontology, and the W3C Open Annotation Model

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Presented by: George Planansky, CGA Affiliate.

Location: Room S050 of CGIS South, 1730 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA.

Abstract:  

When you annotate a map,  are you annotating a document, or are you annotating the Earth?    Or an image of the earth?    Is this just a matter of semantics?

Maps use a visual language to depict representations, of the earth's surface. These are geographic images in mathematical language, but also cartographic creations that bespeak a cartographic language.
