OGC invites you to participate in its UML-to-GML Application Schema Initiative (UGAS-2019) -- Initiative aims to enhance the automated conversion of UML models to OWL


4 February 2019: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) invites interested members & non-members to participate in OGC’s UML-to-GML Application Schema Initiative (UGAS-2019).

The goal of the UGAS-2019 Initiative is to research and develop solutions for advanced schema mappings and related technologies from application schemas based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to ontologies based on the Web Ontology Language (OWL).

This research driven initiative builds on previous OGC Testbed efforts to develop techniques and tools for the development of Resource Description Framework (RDF) based schemas from ISO 19109-conformant application schemas.

UGAS-2019 provides a unique opportunity to enhance the automated conversion of UML models to OWL, including support for a wide range of OCL constraints. It allows influencing future standardization work in the form of enhanced conversion processes that will go into a new release of what is currently ISO 19150-2.

This Initiative is being conducted under the OGC Innovation Program. The OGC Innovation Program provides a collaborative agile process for solving geospatial challenges. Organizations (sponsors and technology implementers) come together to solve problems, produce prototypes, develop demonstrations, provide best practices, and advance the future of standards. Since 1999, more than 100 initiatives have taken place - from in-kind interoperability experiments run by a working group to multi-million dollar testbeds with hundreds of participants. Innovation Program initiatives include testbeds, interoperability experiments, pilots, concept development studies, hackathons, engineering services, and plugfests.

To learn more about this Initiative, including how to join, please visit the UML-to-GML Application Schema Initiative (UGAS-2019) webpage or contact [email protected] The Call For Participation is available to download from the OGC Portal as either HTML or PDF versions.
