ABSTRACT

It is a starting point to understand the concepts of geography curriculum in the class of geography because geographical concepts serve as a medium to convey the knowledge and become a tool of geographical thoughts. In order to improve the efficiency of geography education, it is necessary to help for students to study through the relationships among the inter-geographical concepts and the hierarchical structures of geography along with the well-defined proposition of geographical concepts. Semantic Web and ontology, appeared to overcome the limitations of key word retrieval recently, make a retrieval based on meanings and concepts possible. It is possible for us to explicitly express the geographical concepts by using the ontology because it consists of the languages of taxonomy which classify the type and category of concepts hierarchically and structurally. As a result, the learning of geographical concepts required in the geography curriculum is possible by applying the ontology technology. The objective of this study is to implement geo-ontology, to evaluate the accuracy of ontology system, and to propose the future tasks to improve the understanding and learning curve of geography with the case of coastal topology.
