Abstract: Managing heterogeneous data is a challenge for cultural
heritage institutions as they host and develop various collections with
heterogeneous types of material, described by different metadata schemas. In
this paper, we propose an expressive mapping language for the mapping of
XML-based metadata schemas to CIDOC CRM. We also show how these mappings can be
used to transform metadata to CIDOC CRM data by considering the mapping of VRA
Core 4.0 to CIDOC CRM.
Keywords: Metadata interoperability, ontologies, mapping languages.
