Notes about Ontopic's approach to Data Integration, Mapping and Knowledge Graphs
Ontopic has a distinctive approach to data integration, which we would like to share by means of small and easily readable articles. We try to keep the amount of specific terms to a minimum. We created a glossary for the few terms we think are almost unavoidable.
The traditional way of mapping column values to classes when building a Knowledge Graph is annoying - either you have to write a lot of SQL queries or you break the clear separation between data from the source and the ontology. In this article, we show you how to map a class based on the value in a given column in a single step with Ontopic Studio.
Connecting things is certainly the characteristic feature of a Knowledge Graph. This pattern helps you to nicely highly connected Knowledge Graphs from database tables.
There is more then one way to map data sources to Knowledge Graphs. We shortly describe the most common ones and give some advice on how to chose which way to go.
Mapping data sources to the integrated data solution is an important step in many data integration projects. We started a series on mapping data with this first article.
