RDF RULES FOR XML DATA CONVERSION TO OWL ONTOLOGY

Christophe Cruz, Christophe Nicolle

Abstract

The paper presents a flexible method to enrich and populate an existing OWL ontology from XML data based on RDF rules. Theses rules are defined in order to populate automatically the new version of the OWL ontology. Basic rules are defined to identify elements in XML schemas and an OWL schema. Advanced mapping rules are based on basic rules in order to define the mapping between XML schemas elements and OWL schema elements. In addition, this flexible method allows users to reuse rules for other conversions and populations.
