Automating the discovery of mappings between structured data sources is a long standing and important problem in data management. We discuss the rich history of the problem and the variety of technical solutions advanced in the database community over the previous four decades. Based on this discussion, we develop a basic statement of the data mapping problem and a general framework for reasoning about the design space of system solutions to the problem. We then concretely illustrate the… CONTINUE READING
