ABSTRACT

According to trends in nowadays digital cartography and the spreading of mapping software among ordinary people, it is more and more important to transfer cartographical knowledge from cartographers to computers. This process is one of the most difficult tasks for object-oriented software designers. The design of a cartographical ontology could facilitate the creation of a cartography knowledge base as
a basis for an intelligent system. Captured knowledge and the knowledge base can help map users to better understand different map symbols, cartographic rules, color schemes (ramps), design layouts and to codify this knowledge into software. Specific knowledge
can be then built-in in a specific user-friendly software solution. This paper describes the process of special cartographical ontology development as a base for the creation of an intelligent system for thematic mapping support with the use of expert system
features.

Keywords: ontology, cartography, intelligent system, knowledge base
