RDF generation processes are becoming more interoperable, reusable, and maintainable due to the increased usage of mapping languages: languages used to describe how to generate an RDF graph from (semi-)structured data. This gives rise to new mapping languages, each with different characteristics. However, it is not clear which mapping language is fit for a given task. Thus, a comparative framework is needed. In this paper, we investigate a set of mapping languages that inhibit complementary… Expand
Towards the Definition of a Language-Independent MappingTemplate for Knowledge Graph Creation
The use of knowledge graphs is spreading in the scientific community across different domains, from social sciences to biomedicine. The creation of knowledge graphs usually needs the integration ofExpand
Towards the Definition of a Language-Independent Mapping Template for Knowledge Graph Creation (short paper)
TLDR
This paper devise the use of a well-known tool commonly used in the scientific community, the spreadsheets, to specify the mapping rules in a language-independent way, to ease the mapping creation and make it more accessible for the community. Expand
R2RML and RML Comparison for RDF Generation, their Rules Validation and Inconsistency Resolution
In this paper, an overview of the state of the art on knowledge graph generation is provided, with focus on the two prevalent mapping languages: the W3C recommended R2RML and its generalisation RML.Expand
ShExML: improving the usability of heterogeneous data mapping languages for first-time users
TLDR
Results show that ShExML users tend to perform better than those of YARRRML and SPARQL-Generate and remarks some aspects of improvement. Expand
A ShExML Perspective on Mapping Challenges: Already Solved Ones, Language Modifications and Future Required Actions
Data mapping languages allow users to create knowledge graphs with lower cost and time. Some challenges cannot be solved with state-of-the-art languages and tools, though. Thus, in this paper we useExpand

Converting Asturian Notaries Public deeds to Linked Data Using TEI and ShExML
TLDR
This work explores the transformation of TEI-based XML transcriptions of notarial contracts to RDF by means of an heterogeneous data mapping tool which can improve the mechanism to publish Linked Data from existing transcriptions. Expand
Everything for the Users, Nothing by the Users: Lessons Learnt from a Heterogeneous Data Mapping Languages User Study
Usability has been seen as a new requirement in the Semantic Web community. Heterogeneous data mapping languages enable users to create knowledge graphs from legacy datasets. Even though some ofExpand
Rule-based Recommendation System based on Semantic Web of Things
TLDR
Through the proposed research, this work intends to create a rule-based recommendation framework that advises users to take the most convenient action that IoT applications should execute on their current social network activities utilizing the built-in definition logic rules. Expand
Intestinal microbiota alterations by dietary exposure to chemicals from food cooking and processing. Application of data science for risk prediction
TLDR
Machine Learning of data obtained in subclinical and precancerous stages would help to establish risk thresholds for the intake of toxic compounds generated during food processing as related to diet and IM profiles, whereas Semantic Web could improve data accessibility and usability from different studies, as well as helping to elucidate novel interactions among those chemicals, IM and diet.

RML: A Generic Language for Integrated RDF Mappings of Heterogeneous Data
TLDR
The rml mapping language is introduced, a generic language based on an extension over r2rml, the w3c standard for mapping relational databases into rdf, which becomes source-agnostic and extensible, while facilitating the denition of mappings of multiple heterogeneous sources. Expand
Declarative Data Transformations for Linked Data Generation: The Case of DBpedia
TLDR
This paper proposes an approach where data transformations are defined declaratively and (i) are aligned with the mapping languages and (ii) are decoupled and reusable, which allows developers to improve the generation framework, whilst contributors can focus on the actual Linked Data. Expand
Translation of Heterogeneous Databases into RDF, and Application to the Construction of a SKOS Taxonomical Reference
TLDR
The xR2RML mapping language is designed to map various types of databases to RDF, by flexibly adapting to heterogeneous query languages and data models while remaining free from any specific language. Expand
Sustainable Linked Data Generation: The Case of DBpedia
TLDR
This paper proposes adapting a different semantic-driven approach that decouples, in a declarative manner, the extraction, transformation and mapping rules execution of the dbpedia ef, and achieves an enhanced data generation process that improves its quality, coverage and sustainability. Expand
A SPARQL Extension for Generating RDF from Heterogeneous Formats
TLDR
A new language, SPARQL-Generate, that generates RDF from: (i) a RDF Dataset, and (ii) a set of documents in arbitrary formats, and it is shown that this first naive open source implementation performs better than the reference implementation of RML for big transformations. Expand
Automated Metadata Generation for Linked Data Generation and Publishing Workflows
TLDR
This paper introduces an approach that relies on declarative descriptions of (i) mapping rules, specifying how the rdf data is generated, and of (ii) raw data access interfaces to automatically and incrementally generate provenance and metadata information. Expand
xR2RML: Relational and Non-Relational Databases to RDF Mapping Language
This document describes xR2RML, a language for expressing customized mappings from various types of databases (XML, object-oriented, NoSQL) to RDF datasets. xR2RML flexibly adapts to heterogeneousExpand
An Ontology to Semantically Declare and Describe Functions
TLDR
This paper presents a data model, specification, and ontology to semantically declare and describe functions independently of the used technology, which can declare and use actionable events in semantic applications, without restricting ourselves to programming language-dependent implementations. Expand
Conformance Test Cases for the RDF Mapping Language (RML)
TLDR
This work generated an initial set of reusable test cases based on R2RML test cases that can be used by any tool, regardless of the programming language, and tested the conformance of two RML processors: the RMLMapper and CARML. Expand
An evaluation of uplift mapping languages
TLDR
The authors describe FunUL, which, unlike other related work, defines functions as resources within the uplift mapping itself, integrating data transformation functions and mapping definitions, which makes the generation of RDF from source data transparent and traceable. Expand
