Abstract:Metadata creation is a bottleneck in European Union (EU) INSPIRE Directive. Firstly the paper presents results from a conformance test conducted at Swedish Land Survey. The results of the testing show a gap between the current statuses of metadata and INSPIRE demands. Secondly the paper introduces an ontology‐engineering approach to support extraction of metadata from annotated text documents. This approach can be used for generating metadata in Ontology Web Language (OWL) format that can be reused in a Geography Markup Language (GML) documents instance. Catalogue service of the Swedish geoportal to INSPIRE can employ this approach to generate dataset‐level metadata.

- International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies aims at publishing research advances and discussions about meta-data in a broad sense, and about their associated semantics and ontological structures, from a multi-disciplinary perspective, and with an emphasis on domain-specific ontologies and organisational, human interaction and social issues regarding metadata annotation, use and assessment. It also intends covering Semantic Web research, as a concrete metadata-intensive technological framework in which shared and standardised semantics are a critical issue.
