Automated Mapping Generation for Converting Databases into Linked Data
Most of the data on the Web is stored in relational databases. In order to make the Semantic Web grow we need to provide easy-to-use tools to convert those databases into linked data, so that even people with little knowledge of the semantic web can use them. Some programs able to convert relational databases into RDF files have been developed, but the user still has to link manually the database attribute names to existing ontology properties and this generated "linked data" is not actually linked with external relevant data. We propose here a method to associate automatically attribute names to existing ontology entities in order to complete the automation of the conversion of databases. We also present a way - rather basic, but with low error rate - to add links automatically to relevant data from other data sets.
