Abstract

The Geodatabase of the Piemonte Geological Map was designed in a way suitable for linking the geological knowledge of the geological domain at hand to more general levels of knowledge represented in some Earth science ontologies and namely in a dedicated ontology (OntoGeonous). The paper describes how the two different knowledge levels are assimilated in the GeoPiemonte informative system, providing relations between the contents of the geodatabase and the encoded concepts of the reference ontologies.
