Abstract: Mapping and merging of multiple ontologies to produce consistent, coherent and correct merged global ontology is an essential process to enable heterogeneous multi-vendors semantic-based systems to communicate with each other. To generate such a global ontology automatically, the individual ontologies must be free of (all types of) errors. We have observed that the present error classification does not include all the errors. This paper extends the existing error classification (Inconsistency, Incompleteness and Redundancy) and provides a discussion about the consequences of these errors. We highlight the problems that we faced while developing our DKP-OM, ontology merging system and explain how these errors became obstacles in efficient ontology merging process. It integrates the ontological errors and design anomalies for content evaluation of ontologies under one framework. This framework helps ontologists to build semantically correct ontology free from errors that enables effecti ve and automatic ontology mapping and merging with lesser user intervention. (More)
