Abstract:
The goal of the project was to envisage a new generation of
Geographical Information Systems, characterized by enhanced
capabilities to support spatio-temporal reasoning and semantic
integration of diverse data models.
In particular, a software component was designed and partially
implemented. In the development environment of GIS
applications it is able to obtain the enhanced capabilities
mentioned above.

The design was based upon the amalgamation of a repoirtoire of
programming facilities coming from deductive constraint
databases, which merge deductive databases and constraint
logic programming, and logic-based mediator languages, which
declaratively support the semantic integration of heterogeneous
data.
