Author & Title: Kai-Uwe Carstensen, Spatio-temporal Ontologies and Attention, published in Spatial Cognition & Computation, Vol. 7, No. 1, pp. 13-32, 2007

 

Abstract:

 

This paper presents a new proposal for the design of spatio-temporal ontologies which has its own origin in cognitively motivated spatial semantics. It is shown that selective attention not only plays a central role in the characterization of spatial relations but that the representation of attentional aspects also leads to the possibility of defining an ontological upper structure which systematically covers both the spatial and the temporal domain.

 

Keywords: Spatial Expressions, Attention, Spatial Relations, Ontologies
