The classification of products and services enables reliable and efficient electronic exchanges of product data across organizations. Many companies classify products (a) according to generic or industryspecific product classification standards, or (b) by using proprietary category systems. Such classification systems often contain thousands of product(More)
The ongoing trend towards open data embraced by the Semantic Web has started to produce a large number of data sources. These data sources are published using RDF vocabularies, and it is possible to navigate throughout the data due to their graph topology. This paper presents LinksB2N, an algorithm for discovering information overlaps in RDF data(More)
The interdisciplinary nature of the Semantic Web and the many projects put forward by the community led to a large number of widely accepted serialization formats for RDF. Most of these RDF syntaxes have been developed out of a necessity to serve specific purposes better than existing ones, e.g. RDFa was proposed as an extension to HTML for embedding(More)
To date, the automatic exchange of product information between business partners in a value chain is typically done using Business-toBusiness (B2B) catalog standards such as EDIFACT, cXML, or BMEcat. At the same time, the Web of Data, in particular the GoodRelations vocabulary, offers the necessary means to publish highly-structured product data in a(More)
In this paper, we describe the technical approach of and experiences gained in exposing a major share of the European building and construction materials market on the basis of the GoodRelations Web vocabulary for e-commerce. This allows for the fine-grained search for products, suppliers, and warehouses for any building-related sourcing needs. Because(More)
Design-pattern driven ontology construction, whether manual or (partially) automated, relies on the availability of curated repositories of Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs) adequately characterized. In order to consistently apply a given ODP, not only it is important to characterize it in full, but also examine its alignment or deviation to other relevant(More)
The Faceted Classification Scheme (FCS) ODP is a Reengineering ODP that transforms a non-ontological resource from the field of Library and Information Science, also known as Faceted Classification Scheme, into an ontological resource. The ontological resource corresponds to an OWL DL model that results from a specific application of the Normalisation ODP(More)
