The extended understanding of geographic ecosystems, including the physical and logical description of space with associated data and activities as well as the dynamics inside, poses complex scenarios that cannot be obtained from a simple geographic-oriented data model. The main purpose of this current work is the conceptual integration of a physical space model with dynamic logic support able to describe the relations amongst the different elements composing the space as well as the relations between spaces and external elements. In the context of this work, semantics have the critical and central role of connecting and relating the different dimensions on the space, even though they are mostly a virtual dimension in the overall model.
