|Definitionskos:definition||This Engineering Report (ER) documents the Geospatial Taxonomy research activities conducted by the Aviation (AVI) subthread of the Cross Community Interoperability (CCI) thread in OGC Testbed 13. One of the critical factors in the overall usability of services - and System Wide Information Management (SWIM) enabled services in particular - is the ability of a service to be discovered. The ability of a service to be discovered is assured by providing a uniformly interpretable set of service metadata that can be accessed by a service consumer through a retrieval mechanism (e.g., a service registry). Such a set of metadata (commonly referred to as a service description) has been defined by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation (EUROCONTROL) and formalized in a Service Description Conceptual Model (SDCM) [SDCM].The SDCM is currently used in standard service description documents and service registries by both FAA and EUROCONTROL. As part of the effort of enhancing service discovery, both organizations also use a number of categories that can be associated with all services and are generally referred to as taxonomies. The current set of taxonomies used by both EUROCONTROL and FAA categorizes (i.e., meta tags) services based on their availability status, interface model, data product, etc. However, despite the increasing role of OGC services in the SWIM environment, no taxonomies for categorizing services based on geographical coverage or other geospatial characteristics have been defined. This ER documents the work conducted as part of Testbed 13 CCI thread and AVI subthread to identify and classify SWIM-enabled Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) services with geographical taxonomies and the integration thereof into SDCM.|
