Using RIF for service-based transformation of geodata

Type: Diploma Thesis, 2011

Contact: Susanne Reinwarth, TU Dresden

Abstract: The aim of the thesis is the evaluation of RIF with regard to the encoding of schema mapping rules with a particular focus on spatial data. The requirements on such a rule language and their implementation in RIF are analyzed and evaluated based on practical examples from the INSPIRE environment.

For the analysis the open source software HALE is used which provides a graphical user interface for the definition of schema mappings and an export opportunity of the mapping rules to RIF. Since these functionalities are not yet fully implemented in HALE parts of the work will adapt or extend the software, if necessary.
