Integrating environmental information: Incorporating metadata in a distributed information systems architecture
Cranefield, Stephen; Purvis, Martin
An approach is presented for incorporating metatata constraints into queries to be processed by a distributed environmental information system. The approach, based on a novel metamodel unifying concepts from the Unified Modelling Language (UML), the Object Query Language (OQL), and the Resource Description Framework (RDF), allows metadata information to be represented and processed in combination with regular data queries.
