RML: A Generic Language for Integrated RDF Mappings of Heterogeneous Data

  title={RML: A Generic Language for Integrated RDF Mappings of Heterogeneous Data},
  author={Anastasia Dimou and M. V. Sande and P. Colpaert and R. Verborgh and E. Mannens and R. Walle},
Despite the signicant number of existing tools, incorporating data from multiple sources and dierent formats into the Linked Open Data cloud remains complicated. No mapping formalisation exists to dene how to map such heterogeneous sources into rdf in an integrated and interoperable fashion. This paper introduces the rml mapping language, a generic language based on an extension over r2rml, the w3c standard for mapping relational databases into rdf. Broadening r2rml’s scope, the language… Expand
Extending RML to further embrace data source heterogeneity
This position paper aims to increase the usability of RML for transforming heterogeneous data sources to RDF, and possible extensions to RML are proposed. Expand
Translation of Heterogeneous Databases into RDF, and Application to the Construction of a SKOS Taxonomical Reference
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
D2RML: Integrating Heterogeneous Data and Web Services into Custom RDF Graphs
D2RML allows web service-based data transformations, simple data manipulation and filtering, and conditional maps, so as to improve the selectivity of RDF mapping rules and facilitate the generation of higher quality RDF data stores, through a lightweight, easy to write and modify specification.

Mapping, Enriching and Interlinking Data from Heterogeneous Distributed Sources
A uniform way of defining how to map and interlink data from heterogeneous sources, alternative approaches to perform the mappings and methods to assess the quality and integrity of the resulting Linked Data sets are proposed. 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
Extraction and Semantic Annotation of Workshop Proceedings in HTML Using RML
This paper presents how the prototype rml Processor is adjusted, taking advantage of rml’s scalability, to extract and map data of workshop proceedings published in html to the rdf data model for the Semantic Publishing Challenge needs. Expand
ShExML: An Heterogeneous Data Mapping Language based on ShEx
ShExML, a language based on ShEx that can map and merge heterogeneous data formats into a single RDF representation, is proposed that can facilitate the migration of nonsemantic data to the Semantic Web. Expand
Integrating Heterogeneous Data Sources in the Web of Data. (Intégrer des Sources de Données Hétérogènes dans le Web de Données)
This thesis proposes a generic mapping language, xR2RML, to describe the mapping of heterogeneous data sources into an arbitrary RDF representation, and develops a prototype implementation for MongoDB, the popular NoSQL document store. Expand
ARDI: Automatic Generation of RDFS Models from Heterogeneous Data Sources
This paper proposes a method to extract the schema from semi-structured and structured data sources, and generate an equivalent RDFS representation that complements current frameworks and reduces the manual workload required to represent the input data sources in terms of the integration canonical data model.

Extending R2RML to a source-independent mapping language for typed literals
Linked data is often generated from raw data with help of mapping languages. However, such techniques do not allow complex data transformations which either can be implemented as custom solutions orExpand


Extending R2RML to a Source-independent Mapping Language for RDF
This work proposes the extension of R2RML to also support mappings of data sources in other structured formats (indicatively CSV, TSV, XML, JSON) and focuses on the mappings and their optimal reuse. Expand
Mapping between RDF and XML with XSPARQL
The XSPARQL language is presented, by combining XQuery and SPARQL, that allows to query XML and RDF data using the same framework and transform data from one format into the other. Expand
Enabling Linked Data Publication with the Datalift Platform
Datalift, a framework and a platform helping to lift raw data sources to semantic interlinked data sources, is presented. Expand
A comparison of RDB-to-RDF mapping languages
A feature-based comparison of the state-of-the-art RDB-to-RDF mapping languages is provided and a classification proposes four categories of mapping languages: direct mapping, read-only general-purpose mapping, reading-write general- Purpose mapping, and special- purpose mapping. Expand
Mapping Master: A Flexible Approach for Mapping Spreadsheets to OWL
The developed language, called M2, overcomes shortcomings with existing mapping techniques, including their restriction to well-formed spreadsheets reminiscent of a single relational database table and verbose syntax for expressing mapping rules when transforming spreadsheet contents into OWL.

XLWrap - Querying and Integrating Arbitrary Spreadsheets with SPARQL
A novel approach is presented for generating RDF graphs of arbitrary complexity from various spreadsheet layouts that features a full expression algebra based on the syntax of OpenOffice Calc and various shift operations, which can be used to wrap cross tables including multiple sheets and spreadsheet files.
