Dataset publication on the Web has been greatly influenced by the Linked Open Data (LOD) project. Many interlinked datasets have become freely available on the Web creating a structured and distributed knowledge representation. Analysis and aligning of concepts and instances in these interconnected datasets have received a lot of attention in the recent past compared to properties. We identify three different categories of property pairs found in the alignment process and study their relative distribution among well known LOD datasets. We also provide comparative analysis of state-of-the-art techniques with regard to different categories, highlighting their capabilities. This could lead to more realistic and useful alignment of properties in LOD and similar datasets.


Presented at the I-Semantics 2013 Posters and Demonstrations Tack co-located with the 9th International Conference on Semantic Systems, Graz, Austria, September 4-6, 2013.
