Despite the significant number of existing tools, incorporating data from multiple sources and didifferent formats into the Linked Open Data cloud remains complicated. No mapping formalization exists to define how to map such heterogeneous sources into RDF in an integrated and interoperable fashion.
This paper introduces the RML mapping language, a generic language based on an extension over R2RML, the W3C standard for mapping relational databases into RDF. Broadening R2RML's scope, the language becomes source-agnostic and extensible, while facilitating the definition of mappings of multiple heterogeneous sources. This leads to higher integrity within datasets and richer interlinking among resources.
