Ontology quality can be affected by the difficulties involved in ontology modelling which may imply the appearance of anomalies in ontologies. This situation leads to the need of validating ontologies, that is, assessing their quality and correctness. Ontology validation is a key activity in different ontology engineering scenarios such as development and(More)
One of the major barriers to the deployment of Linked Data is the difficulty that data publishers have in determining which vocabularies to use to describe the semantics of data. This systematic report describes Linked Open Vocabularies (LOV), a high-quality catalogue of reusable vocabularies for the description of data on the Web. The LOV initiative(More)
The widespread use of mobile devices is leading to a next generation of applications that exploit user contextual information to provide a richer experience. One of the activities to perform during the development of these context-aware applications is to define a model to represent and manage context information. Currently, there is a lack of consensual(More)
We describe the AEMET meteorological dataset, which makes available some data sources from the Agencia Estatal de Meteorología (AEMET, Spanish Meteorological Office) as Linked Data. The data selected for publication are generated every ten minutes by approximately 250 automatic weather stations deployed across Spain and made available as CSV files in the(More)
The Linked Data initiative continues to grow making more datasets available; however, discovering the type of data contained in a dataset, its structure, and the vocabularies used still remains a challenge hindering the querying and reuse. VoID descriptions provide a starting point but a more detailed analysis is required to unveil the implicit vocabulary(More)
Linked Data resources can be referenced by rights expressions or access control policies. Based on the common model found in six existing rights expression languages and revolving around the n-ary relation pattern, the License Linked Data Resources pattern is presented as a solution to describe existing licenses and ad-hoc rights expressions alike and valid(More)
Reusing knowledge resources, specifically Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs), has became a popular technique within the ontology engineering field. Such a reuse allows speeding up the ontology development process, saving time and money, and promoting the application of good practices. Recently methods and tools to support the reuse of ODPs have emerged. In(More)
The so-called Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs), which have been defined as solutions to ontological design problems, are of great help to developers when modelling ontologies since these patterns provide a development guide and improve the quality of the resulting ontologies. However, it has been demonstrated that, in many cases, developers encounter(More)
The application of methodologies for building ontologies can improve ontology quality. However, such quality is not guaranteed because of the difficulties involved in ontology modelling. These difficulties are related to the inclusion of anomalies or bad practices within the ontology development. Several authors have provided lists of typical anomalies(More)
