Ontology issues because they existand not, cause each language frameworks the question. Mwh was awarded the owl full is more information to leave a formal specification. Thus if a class has at most notably george herbert mead and procedures. Protg ontology by the hasemployer may, be described as a web documents each. Some knowledge of reusable components is(More)
The W3C Semantic Sensor Network Incubator group (the SSN-XG), as one of its activities, produced an OWL 2 ontology to describe sensors and observations the SSN ontology, available at http://purl.oclc.org/NET/ssnx/ssn. The SSN ontology can describe the capabilities of sensors, the measurement processes used and the resultant observations, and can be aligned(More)
We present R2O, an extensible and declarative language to describe mappings between relational DB schemas and ontologies implemented in RDF(S) or OWL. R2O provides an extensible set of primitives with welldefined semantics. This language has been conceived expressive enough to cope with complex mapping cases arisen from situations of low similarity between(More)
We introduce SRBench, a general-purpose benchmark primarily designed for streaming RDF/SPARQL engines, completely based on real-world data sets from the Linked Open Data cloud. With the increasing problem of too much streaming data but not enough tools to gain knowledge from them, researchers have set out for solutions in which Semantic Web technologies are(More)
Sensor networks are increasingly being deployed in the environment for many different purposes. The observations that they produce are made available with heterogeneous schemas, vocabularies and data formats, making it difficult to share and reuse this data, for other purposes than those for which they were originally set up. The authors propose an(More)
In this paper we review and compare the main methodologies, tools and languages for building ontologies that have been reported in the literature, as well as the main relationships among them. Ontology technology is nowadays mature enough: many methodologies, tools and languages are already available. The future work in this field should be driven towards(More)
The Semantic Web has attracted a diverse, but significant, community of researchers, institutes and companies, all sharing the belief that one day the Semantic Web will have as big an impact on life as currently the WWW/Internet has. We share that vision, based on the ever-increasing need to reduce information overload, and to increase task delegation to(More)
The availability of streaming data sources is progressively increasing thanks to the development of ubiquitous data capturing technologies such as sensor networks. The heterogeneity of these sources introduces the requirement of providing data access in a unified and coherent manner, whilst allowing the user to express their needs at an ontological level.(More)
The W3C SPARQL working group is defining the new SPARQL 1.1 query language. The current working draft of SPARQL 1.1 focuses mainly on the description of the language. In this paper, we provide a formalization of the syntax and semantics of the SPARQL 1.1 federation extension, an important fragment of the language that has not yet received much attention.(More)
This paper presents WebODE as a workbench for ontological engineering that not only allows the collaborative edition of ontologies at the knowledge level, but also provides a scalable architecture for the development of other ontology development tools and ontology-based applications. First, we will describe the knowledge model of WebODE, which has been(More)
