MMI Semantic Framework in Practice

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)


The main goal is to present the Marine Metadata Interoperability (MMI) Semantic Framework. We will discuss the motivation for semantics, a brief overview of projects benefiting from semantic web approaches in Ocean Sciences, an overview of the MMI project, and the MMI Ontology Registry and Repository.

We will also find out what a furniture online store has in common with an ocean science advisory web site.
