Abstract

Since the latter half of the 1990s, ontology has been the main area of study in the semantic web. Ontology has been actively studied in several areas for a long time. There are many ontological applications and construction methods. In the study of the semantic web, ontologies are built using OWL capabilities. However, it is not suitable for managing spatial relationships. To represent spatial relationships, we try to create new vocabularies based on these two theories. Modeling topological relationships are accomplished using a neighborhood graph that only considers topological relatedness. In addition, we define the new vocabulary to represent the spatial relationships based on spatial description logic. In this article, we focus on multimedia information retrieval. We use the new vocabularies that were defined using these two theories for representing spatial relationships in image and video retrieval.
