ESIP ontology alignment

Earth and Environmental Science ontologies have very different degrees of quality and curation. Semantic descriptions of these datasets and practices are crucial to discovery across schemas. One way to ascertain this degree of quality is to locate terms with similar semantics between two or more ontologies and, based on their annotations and surrounding concepts in the ontologies, have domain users assess the comparative quality. The scope of this project includes providing backend mappings to be used by automated assistance to the users in the form of semantically similar terms from different ontologies for the same domain.
