Abstract

Deciding which RDF vocabulary terms to use when modeling data as Linked Open Data (LOD) is far from trivial. In this paper, we propose TermPicker as a novel approach enabling vocabulary reuse by recommending vocabulary terms based on various features of a term. These features include the term’s popularity, whether it is from an already used vocabulary, and the so-called schema-level pattern (SLP) feature that exploits which terms other data providers on the LOD cloud use to describe their data. We apply Learning To Rank to establish a ranking model for vocabulary terms based on the utilized features. The results show that using the SLP-feature improves the recommendation quality by 29–36 % considering the Mean Average Precision and the Mean Reciprocal Rank at the first five positions compared to recommendations based on solely the term’s popularity and whether it is from an already used vocabulary.
