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.

Medicīnas Datu Bāzu Ontologiskā Pārbūvēšana

Aprakstīts datu eksports no vairākām medicīnas datu bāzēm (relāciju datu bāzēm) uz vienotu Medicīnas datu noliktavu (RDF datu bāzi, kas veidota atbilstoši integrētai OWL ontologijai). Eksportētajiem datiem var ērti piekļūt ar SPARQL vai grafisku vaicājumu valodu ViziQuer, kurai pamatā UML profils OWL valodai. Šī pieeja ilustrēta, izmantojot vienu no Latvijas Medicīnas datu bāzēm - Traumu registru.
