Generation and exploitation of semantic information using an epidemiological relational database as a primary source of information Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • Recently, many researchers are trying to automate the automatic production of ontologies, realizing extraction of the information contained in databases using reverse engineering, however, because of the continuous evolution of standards in relational databases, not all the characteristics presented by modern databases managers are still supported. Besides as databases can be implemented in several ways in relational databases using different commands, this frequently causes differences when creating ontologies. In this paper, is presented how this approach can be applied to an epidemiological database and the advantages of use, when realizing query exploitation. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.
