1st Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Andreas Schrader (ISNM)

2nd Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Hubertus von Amelunxen (ISNM)

This report presents semantical requirements of an urban museum system due to user context changes inherited by mobility. It presents the Semantic Web as an appropriate infrastructure and discusses how it provides the flexibility required. In detail the logical reasoning concept of ontologies is reviewed and set into context of a Luebeck urban museum tour guide. Finally, an ontological development framework is introduced, and tailored to the process needs of designing a Luebeck urban museum ontology.
