The incorporation of computer-based technologies into spatial planning has increased the availabilityof spatial information. Ontologies are prominent in this process because they create repositoriesof digital information that can help an interdisciplinary interaction among experts, or betweenexperts and citizens, or they can support informed decisions by policymakers or administrationso as to limit discretionary powers and enhance shared community futures. This paperproposes an ontology that models the relations among the domestic actors, development policies,spatial schemes, spatial schemes’ administrative bounds, spatial levels and evaluation process in aspatial planning system. Interests in this paper occur in gathering an enriched and complexknowledge base for planning purposes which can deal with the complexity of spatial problems interms of knowledge, cognition, perception, domestic actors’ behaviors and expectations, roles andinteractions. The proposed ontology could be used as the core of a knowledge infrastructure forstoring, organizing, and monitoring the implementations of existing spatial schemes and plans onnational, regional, and local scales. As a case study, this paper discusses the spatial planning systemin Greece, as such knowledge infrastructure is critically lacking in the Greek state.
