When using units and quantities in equations or in text, ambiguity in the use of symbols may exist, especially if a (quantitative) text is read by someone who is not an expert in the field. Symbols for one quantity or unit used in one field of research may overlap symbols used in other fields of research. The Ontology of units of Measure (OM) aims to disambiguate the use of quantitative information in text. This presentation shows how semi-automatic annotation of text can be used with OM to disambiguate quantitative information not only in text but also in other formats such as excel sheets.
