The linked open data continues to grow rapidly, but a limitation of much of the data that is being published is the lack of a semantic description. While there are tools that help users to quickly convert a database into RDF, they do not provide a way to easily map the data into an existing ontology. This paper presents an approach that allows users to interactively map their structured sources into an existing ontology and then use that mapping to generate RDF triples.
