Mutualisation de données et de connaissances pour la
Gestion Intégrée des Zones Côtières.

Abstract : This Phd is a part of the Syscolag's research program and studies concepts and tools to set up in order
mutualize data and knowledge to serve integrated coastal zone management (ICZM). The main
problems consist in the variety of information resources distributed by the different stakeholders as well in the multidisciplinary framework which involves the setting up of a common vocabulary between the partners. This work propose a solution to minimize syntax and semantic interoperabilities problems with an additional dificulty involved by the spatial dimension of information concerned. The goal of this PhD is the setting up of generic methods to improve information and knowledge management in
the ICZM context. The proposed solution consists in a mutualization infrastructure which core is made
a metadata management service to describe and locate existing information as well as a semantic
referential to integrate and share expert knowledge. For the metadata service, the ISO 19115 standard
adapted to spatial information description) has been chosen. A specific profile of the ISO 19115 has
been implemented for the specific Syscolag's context and has been used differently among the different
kind of information resources. The thematic referential comes from an a priori ontology model which structures the concepts inventory of this domain and restitutes the knowledge which is related to. This model has been created by an ecosystemic approach. Spatial dimension has been used at the concepts and relations level as well as for the maps representation (OGC recommandations compliant). The whole solution can be accessed by a Web portal.
