Abstract

In this paper we present a new approach for building RDF schemas by integrating existing ontologies and structured vocabularies (thesauri). We will present a simple mechanism based on the specification of inclusion relationships between thesaurus terms and ontology concepts and show how these relationships can be exploited to create application-specific RDF schemas incorporating the structural views of ontologies and deep classification schemes provided by thesauri.
