Abstract:

Merging ontologies enables the reusability and interoperability of existing knowledge. With growing numbers of relevant ontologies in any given domain, there is a strong need for an automatic, scalable multi-ontology merging tool. We introduce CoMerger, which covers four key aspects of the ontology merging field: compatibility checking of the user-selected Generic Merge Requirements (GMR)s, merging multiple ontologies with adjustable GMRs, quality assessment of the merged ontology, and inconsistency handling of the result. CoMerger is freely accessible through a live portal and the source code is publicly distributed.
