Processing Alignments

Abstract

In this book, we have taken a two-step view on reducing semantic heterogeneity: (i) matching of entities to determine alignment and (ii) processing the alignment according to application needs. In the previous chapters, we have discussed various themes related to the first step. In this chapter, in turn, we present how the alignments can be specifically used by applications, thus focussing on the alignment processing step.
