A Telecommunications and Innovation Ontology for Global City Indicators (ISO 37120)

27 Sep 2015

This paper defines an ontology for representing the definitions of the ISO 37120 Telecommunications and Innovation theme indicators. In order to represent these indicators, two ontologies had to be created: Residency and Service. Using these two ontologies along with the Global City Indicator Foundation Ontology we are able to represent on the Semantic Web:
1. the ISO 37120 definition of Telecommunications and Innovation indicators,
2. their instantiation by cities, and
3. the supporting data used to derive them.
As a result we have enabled the automated analysis of city performance by systems such as PolisGnosis.
