In this paper, we introduce the idea of documenting operational chains for land degradation assessment using ontologies. We believe that this process will help end users better understand the application domain characteristics and evaluate the results of the assessment process. Since the application domain is wide, various operational chains for land degradation assessment and their associated documentation exist, according to different options. This parameterization process causes the development of different ontologies, which nonetheless are, to a certain extent, linked because of the common software components of the corresponding operational chains. We therefore propose a hierarchical structure of these ontologies; so that several requirements such as understanding of expert knowledge interconnections and of application domain variety, documentation and assimilation of new expert knowledge, and reusability of software components become feasible.
