ADOnIS: An ontology-based information system providing seamless integration of structured and unstructured data

Scientific information is contained in structured data like<br>spreadsheets as well as in unstructured data like text. For example, scientific results can manifest themselves in one or more data sets containing main characteristics of the scientific process and one or more publications<br>related to the dataset(s). From a scientist’s perspective, it is desirable to obtain seamless access to this information regardless of whether it is based on structured or unstructured data. To this end, we developed and<br>continuously extend the AquaDiva Ontology-based Information System, ADOnIS, which endeavors to provide such functionality. <br>
