VMF matrix

The VMF matrix is a tool which can be used to automatically compute the "best fit" mappings between terms in controlled vocabularies in different metadata schemes and messages of interest to the educational, bibliographic and content publishing sectors.

The current release of the VMF matrix is available as a single ontology in RDF triples in the TTL format. Two versions are available:

The Vocabulary Mapping Framework (VMF): an introduction provides an introduction to the structure and development of the VMF up to Nov 2009, the end of the first stage of the project.

The VMF ontology was reviewed during the compilation process using version 4 of the open-source Protégé ontology editor. This is available for download from the Protégé website. Please see Using the VMF matrix with Protégé for further information.
