Describing GGOS objects using standardized methods

Wojciech Pachelski, Agnieszka Zwirowicz-Rutkowska


GGOS can be considered as the set of the interrelated objects,
which are assigned to each of the GGOS pillars. Both the multiplicity and the diversity of the GGOS object, but also the diversity of the objects interrelations bring about the complexity of the information structure of GGOS.
To assure better understanding of the universe of discourse, deeper and more systematic analysis and interpretation of phenomena in the field of GGOS, in terms of the standardized methods and IT techniques and knowledge (such as UML, model driven approach of systems designing and the methodology based on the ISO 19100 series of geographic
information standards), the strict description of the information structure of GGOS should be provided. Such a description is the step in the process of designing and deployment of the computerized knowledge bases and
the expert systems.
In the paper some examples of GGOS issues in the terms of selected IT techniques are presented. There is both the description of the static structure of GGOS (e.g. class diagrams, the objects catalogue) and the dynamic one (e.g. activity diagrams, use case diagrams).
The methodology being under discussion in this paper is a new assumption, which may be useful for doing research on the fields of each of GGOS pillars and interrelationships between them.
