Summary
This thesis deals with the problem of attempting to integrate the service oriented model with a semantic approach for the geographical information. Semantic Web is a new opportunity for both fields, traditional Web services and the domain of geographical information, for every task with a potential conjunction between them. The main task is the creation of geo-ontologies and harmonisation of existing ones based on standards of geographical communities. For this purpose, Ontology Web Language (OWL) and OWL-S Language are used to provide a set of ontologies to describe services for geographical domain.
