Semantic Web Services for Ocean Knowledge Management

The authors present a web-services based e-research platform to support scientific research about oceans and marine life. The featured Platform for Ocean Knowledge Management (POKM) employs a services-oriented approach to offer a suite of web services to support the handling, filtering and visualization of large-scale marine-life and ocean data sets. Taking a knowledge management approach, they have employed semantic web technologies to model both the domain knowledge and the service descriptions. This allows a seamless interoperability between the different data-sets and services. The web-services are supported by Canada's CANARIE high bandwidth network that enables the transfer of large volumes of data from multiple sites and the execution of the various web services.
