This chapter is an overview of matchers which have emerged during the last decades. There have already been some comparisons of matching systems, in particular in (Parent and Spaccapietra 2000; Rahm and Bernstein 2001; Do et al. 2002; Kalfoglou and Schorlemmer 2003b; Noy 2004a; Doan and Halevy 2005; Shvaiko and Euzenat 2005; Choi et al. 2006; Bellahsene et al. 2011). Our purpose here is not to compare them in full detail, though we give some comparisons, but rather to show their variety, in order to demonstrate in how many different ways the methods presented in the previous chapters have been practically exploited.
