Hi all,

I am attempting to merge 3 databases: (i) Clinicaltrials.gov <http://clinicaltrials.gov/>  , (ii) Geonames <http://www.geonames.org/>  , (iii) FDA <http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/InformationOnDrugs/ucm135162.htm>  based on ontologies.

There are RDF Triples already defined for (i) http://linkedct.org/index.html and there is already an ontology present for (ii) http://www.geonames.org/ontology/ . However, there is no ontology present for    the FDA database. The field "Zip Code" is common for all the three databases.

If the FDA datasets are not published as RDF yet, we can certainly take the lead in publishing them as a part of the Linking Open Drug Data [1] project.

LinkedCT already provides links to Geonames, but please let me know if you see any missing links.


Could anyone suggest possibilities of how to merge the three databases, based on ontologies?
