Abstract (English)

In this paper, we position the concept of semantic containers as a value-added information layer for SWIM. Sets of data items such as DNOTAMs, TAFs, METARs, SIGMETs and flight plans can be collected into semantic containers having semantic labels that describe the data in a container. Semantic containers can be further processed by applications, but also by information services that produce derived semantic containers, yielding complex derivation chains of semantic containers.
