Abstract

To contribute in filling up the semantic gap in data warehouses and OLAP data cubes, and enable semantic exploration and reasoning on them, this paper highlights the need for semantically augmenting Geo/BI data with convenient semantic relations, and provides OWL-based ontologies (ODW and OOLAP) which are capable of replicating data warehouses (respectively OLAP data cubes) in the form semantic data with respect of Geo/BI data structures, and which enable the possibility of augmenting these semantic BI data with semantic relations. Moreover, the paper demonstrates how ODW and OOLAP ontologies can be combined to current Geo/BI data structures to deliver either pure semantic Geo/BI data or mixed semantically interrelated Geo/BI data to business professionals.
