Environmental risk management depends on effective use of existing expert knowledge. The Web in its present form does not allow for context-aware queries, meaning knowledge-oriented queries.

This paper examines the theoretical background of ontology-based mark-up and reports of an ongoing project to create ontology for flood-risk management.
