Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL) offer significant potential as technologies designed to support the integration of and reasoning across heterogeneous disparate data sources. Comprehensive datasets from many disciplines, including environmental sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, and health sciences, have been semantically annotated using these languages to facilitate data correlation, integration, and reasoning. The widespread adoption of Semantic Web technologies is being driven by the need to answer complex queries that demand the integration and processing of multiple related but disparate multidisciplinary datasets.
