    An important issue in horticulture is ensuring plant disease, such as scab, prevention and treatment. Apple and pear are among the most widely grown (approximately 43% of all fruit tree area [1]) and economically important fruit crops specified worldwide and in Latvia. Scab diseases caused by ascomycetous fungi Venturia inaequalis and V.pyrina are economically the most important diseases worldwide. Research projects have produced research data covering various aspects of plant-pathogen interactions, but there is no internal linkage analysis, as well as implementation of other types of data (such as environmental and meteorological data, etc.). Establishing such a data integration system would allow the identification of new regularities in plant-pathogen interactions, and provide mechanisms for disease control decisions. Semantic analysis is one of information technology approaches to finding relationships in data. The product of analysis is ontology. There are plant disease ontologies which provide classification of diseases and describe their reasons. However, there is no ontology which describes a specific plant and relations among its farming parameters and disease probability. Such an ontology for apple and pear scab is presented in this paper. The constructed ontology can be applied to develop guidelines or digital expert systems.

    In the upcoming age of semantic web there is a large number of relational databases being widely used. When time comes for a legacy relational database to migrate to semantic web or to be integrated with it, an important issue of determining similarity (compatibility) between two data models expressed in different ways arises. The goal of this paper is to describe the methodology for similarity assessment of relational database models and semantic data models and to present an ontology matching tool research prototype. The methodology consists of a set of steps, including transformation rules for data models, whose compatibility must be assessed, to the same ontology representation and applying ontology matching techniques. The methodology enables domain experts to perform a matching task semi-automatically between a relational data model and data model expressed as an ontology. The results of the semi-automatic matching are manually verified by the domain experts. The methodology was approbated using a use case from land administration domain. In the use case compatibility of data model provided by an international standard and a relational database had to be assessed.

    Abstract The purpose of this paper is to tackle semantic heterogeneity problem between land administration domain ontologies using name based ontology matching approach. The majority of ontology matching solutions use one or more string similarity measures to determine how similar two concepts are. Due to wide variety of available general purpose techniques it is not always clear which ones to use for a specific domain. The goal of this research is to evaluate several most applicable string similarity measures for use in land administration domain ontology matching. To support the research ontology matching tool prototype is developed, where the proposed algorithms are implemented. The practical results of ontology matching for State Land Service of Latvia are presented and analyzed. Matching of Land Administration Domain Model international standard, present Latvian Land Administration ontology is conducted.
