In this paper, the authors addressed the issue of producing linked data from data sources conforming to well-structured relational databases. In such cases data already follows a logical schema making the creation of linked data a case of schema mapping and data transformation. The majority of the Web however does not conform to such a rigid representation, instead the heterogeneous structures and formats which it exhibits make it hard for machines to parse and interpret such data.
