When it is used a large amount of semantics of data may be lost during the transformation from the conceptual model to a logical model. As a consequence exchanging/integrating various databases or generating user interfaces for data access become difficult. Ontologies seem an interesting solution to solve these problems, since they allow making explicit the semantics of data. In this paper, we propose an ontology… CONTINUE READING
