An Ontological Approach to Geoscience Dataset Cataloging

M. Benno Blumenthal, John del Corral, Michael Bell, Emily Grover-Kopec

Geoscience has traditionally struggled with metadata for datasets. There are many fixed metadata schemas to facilitate the search and retrieval of datasets but they have trouble representing the richness of datasets coming from an ever-evolving science. For the IRI Data Library of datasets, we want a more relational and extensible paradigm for metadata. The RDF/OWL framework in the form of OWL ontologies presents that possibility.
