Ontological Re-engineering of Medical Databases

This paper describes data export from multiple medical databases (relational databases) into a single shared Medical Data Warehouse (RDF database structured according to an integrated OWL ontology). The exported data is conveniently accessible via SPARQL or via graphical query language ViziQuer based on UML profile for OWL. The approach is illustrated on one of Latvian Medical databases - Injury Register.
