DATA ACCESS THROUGH A DYNAMIC DATA MODEL - A Concept for Accessing Heterogenic Data Structures in RDF Databases

Alexander Wendt, Benjamin Dönz, Dietmar Bruckner

Abstract

This paper introduces an alternative method for using ontologies to create a dynamic data model for RDF databases or other schema-less databases. The main challenge is how to continuously adapt the data model and its queries to new data, which may be imported with any given structure.
