Oil Spill Impacts : Taxonomic and Ontological Approaches (Hardcover)

Oil Spill Impacts : Taxonomic and Ontological Approaches (Hardcover) - image 1 of 1

About this item

Wu and other information and communication specialists construct a taxonomy of concepts related to oil spills using both top-down and bottom-up approaches. The taxonomy focuses on the 2010 Gulf of Mexico Deepwater Horizon oil spill incident, but the concepts relate to oil spill incidents elsewhere in the world. Then in order to explore what does what in an oil spill, they present a topic map that has both the function of an ontology and the function of organizing information resources. The map contains approximately 5,000 concepts and more than 1,000 unique relationships extracted from about 300 documents such as conference presentations, journal articles, news reports, and authoritative Web pages.
