Languages of publication



The main goal of our research is to build the ontology of places in Poland covering variety of aspects of places, mainly administrative and socio-economic. In the paper, we show a part of the ontology on the example of the Mazowieckie Voivodship. The ontology is being implemented using the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language.
Głównym celem badań jest stworzenie ontologii miejscowości w Polsce obejmującej różnorodne ich aspekty, przede wszystkim administracyjne oraz socjoekonomiczne. W artykule przedstawiony został fragment ontologii na przykładzie Województwa Mazowieckiego. Ontologia jest implementowana w języku OWL 2 Web Ontology Language.
