A Shelter Ontology for Global City Indicators (ISO 37120)

24 Sep 2015

This paper defines a shelter ontology that includes concepts of shelters, slums, households and homelessness. ISO 37120 defines 100 indicators to be used by cities to measure and compare their performance. There are 3 shelter themed indicators defined, namely 15.1 Percentage of city population living in slums, 15.2 Number of homeless per 100 000 population, and 15.3 Percentage of households that exist without registered legal titles. This ontology provides a Semantic Web-based representation of the ISO 37120 Shelter theme indicators' definitions, and of a city's indicator values and supporting data, in order to enable the analysis of a city's indicators by intelligent agents.
